Review
Another controversial film from Spike Lee dealing with inter-racial tensions; a black architect starts an affair with his Italian secretary, but they soon find themselves ostracized by both friends and family. An excellent movie - Lee claimed it didn't win at Cannes because of the jury's racism. It's certainly true that even in 1992 (and dare I say even today?) it made audiences uncomfortable. A similar parallel existed for Mike Figgis' underrated 'One Night Stand', whose commercial viability was compromised for attempting to tackle a similar story.
