| compelling and moving
in essence this movie is about two men sharing a prison cell in a Brazil,one a homosexual,one a political prisoner.each has his own way of dealing with the situation they're in.eventually they begin to understand each other and bond.that isn't the whole story of course.this was quote a compelling an d moving film in my opinion.Raul Julia and William Hurt play the the two cell mates and both deliver powerful's a testament to the strong writing and the direction that a movie that essentially takes place in one setting(a jail cell)for the bulk of the running time can be so compelling.if you're expecting a fast paced action packed movie though,look elsewhere.this one is all about the story and the characters.for me,Kiss of the Spider Woman is an 8/10
