An Erotic Tale of a Men Divided Between Love and Lust
29 September 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Joe Goodman (Kristoffer Tabori) is a successful owner of a gallery, alcoholic but sober for eight years and going to AA meetings, married with Rita (Jane Kacsmarek) and with a teenager daughter, Samantha (Rachel Crane). In a bachelor party of a close friend hosted in his gallery, he meets the sexy hooker Wendy (Jennifer Sommerfield). He has a crushing on her and gets a close contact with her, being seduced and sharing fantasies of sadomasochism with her. He becomes divided between the love for Rita and the lust and desire for Wendy.

"Wildly Available" is a surprisingly great erotic tale, approaching themes like middle-age crisis, sexual fantasies, frustration, lust, love and desire. The greatest negative remark is the option for a conservative end of the story since an amoral end would fit better. The cast has a great performance and even the erotic scenes are sensual, never vulgar. Jennifer Sommerfield is a beautiful and charming actress, and is perfect in the role of a prostitute. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): 'Desejos Selvagens' ('Wild Desires')
