"...The fiercely erotic and deeply moving DAMAGE casts a hypnotic spell....Richardson is extraordinary; it's a brave, award-caliber performance..."
"...Malle's sumptuous DAMAGE casts a true erotic spell; it is one of the few films in recent years to evoke the dizzying pull of sexual obsession from the inside out..."
"...Rupert Graves is warm and likable..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Academy Award-nominated Director Louis Malle (Atlantic City) peels back the layers of one family's tragedy to reveal a middle-aged man (Irons) and his son's fiancee (Binoche) entangled in an intensely erotic affair that is as irresistible as it is destructive. Electrifying performances by Irons, Binoche, and Academy Award-nominee Miranda Richardson as Irons' tortured wife, highlight this riveting portrait of an ordinary man, transformed by desire and willing to pay any price for his passion.
