The theme of Portrait Of An Affair concerns the contemporary marriage in trouble. After several years together Robert Bullock and Ona Zee begin questioning the strength of their relationship.

Anthony Spinelli does a fine job of getting powerful performances from the actors and the sexual encounters he creates contain a seductive realism. Although some erotic scenes are short and laden with grief, they are complete and fit the mood of this flick perfectly. Troubled people often have troubled sexual encounters! Using only five performers gives parts of the film a secluded feeling. This allows Spinelli to accurately portray the loneliness partners in painful relationships go through. This tape will have striking appeal to female viewers because their feelings are heavily emphasized and most women will find it emotionally moving.
Portrait Of An Affair is a forthright tape aimed at couples who desire realistic plots in the material they view. It's a definite must have for video store owners.
