view all

Romantic comedy finds Nina (San Giacomo) deciding that the passion is gone from her three-year marriage so, while her husband is out of town, she picks up a nameless Welsh photographer (Rhys) and begins an affair. The affair is over as the movie begins but Nina tells her story to a tabloid journalist (O'Keefe) who's writing about adultery. Gimmicky, with shallow if attractive characters and an equally attractive San Francisco setting.

The story is by Nina being interviewed by a journalist writing about adultery. Nina tells her story about how she had an affair on her husband while he was away on a business trip for a few weeks.

From her affair she learned many lessons that she didn’t know before.
