Ad juga cur faciles populi, cur saeva
volented regna pati pereunt?
"Why are people so docile to the yoke , why do they perish, willing
to endure cruel tyranny?"
This movie features
Jeremy Irons as a man fixated on a young gal who is already
sexually experienced, but whom Iron's character looks upon as a "demon" of sorts
perhaps that he apparently thinks he understands better than the rest of the
out there and feels entitled to for himself.
His character certainly is posited as evil, in respect additionally to his
to kill the girls mother for some reason, although the woman in question (played
by Melanie Griffith) seems a pretty open minded sort in the sort of horseplay
she allows her daughter with Jeremy Irons in this flick.
An added bonus is a deleted scene in which Irons plays out his fantasy of
off beautiful Melanie Griffith (who doesnt turn him on too it seems - perhaps
she is too much of the opposite to his idea of "demon" to be of interest to
What a sorry way to be for such a character as scripted.
Some cultures do tolerate sex for a gal of "Lolita's" age. The age of consent
only in recent years raised here in Canada under the Harper regime. Mainly
its being taken advantage of by seemingly wicked or honestly unloving men as
is played by Irons that a good many people fear, who favour the higher ages for
consent for young gals as these.
