The Triumph of Love | 2002 | PG-13 | - 5.1.1

A princess (Mira Sorvino) experiences pangs of guilt when she realizes that the true heir to the throne (Jay Rodan) is living with two eccentric philosophers (Ben Kingsley and Fiona Shaw) who have taught him to hate the princess, as well as women in general. She is determined to restore him to the throne, and in the process convince him of her love. Also with Rachel Stirling and Jay Rodan. [1:47]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Please note that almost from the very first frame of the movie there is a constant sexual tension. A man and woman kiss passionately a few times. A woman masquerading as a man seduces, with flowery, passionate speech, a woman and two men. A woman and a woman dressed like a man kiss a few times; the woman caresses the face of the woman dressed like a man, holds her hands, and kisses her on the back of the head. A man and woman kiss and hold each other, a man kisses a woman's chest and neck, a man and woman nearly kiss, and a man kisses a woman's hand a few times. A man caresses a woman's calf, and a woman puts a man's hand on her clothed breast. A man holds a woman from the back in order to teach her how to shoot a bow, and she swoons. A woman begins unbuttoning her shirt in front of a man while trying to seduce him. A man comes out of water and we see his bare buttocks (there are a couple of other shots of his buttocks from different angles), and we see his bare chest when he wraps himself in a towel. We see a painting of a woman lying on her stomach with her bare buttocks exposed. Two women disrobe in a moving carriage (we see their bare thighs, backs, and shoulders). Women are shown in period costumes that include cleavage-revealing dresses. A man grabs a woman's buttock and crotch as he helps her down from a wall. There are discussions about being a lover. We see bare buttocks and breasts on statues.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
