"No one uses light and shadow to enhance the male figure as well as Kazan does. There's even an Italian word for it: chiaroscuro, which refers to the way light and shadow can be artistically used to add dimension to an image. His models are always shown to their best advantage, possibly better than they look even to their real lovers. The skin is flawless, the muscles supple, the movements luscious"
"Beautiful settings, crisp clean lit scenes, camera work second to none and the men... Oh the men... Superb! This film is a ten on every level"
