  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
A woman (Baye) has a fantasy of an anonymous affair, so she places an ad in an adult magazine. A man (Lopez) answers the ad and they begin their An Affair Of Love...well, not exactly love. It was supposed to be an encounter of only sex

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits generally good quality. The picture is sharp, but fine details shimmer on occasion. Sometimes, the picture seems a bit smeared and undefined, with slight bleeding of colors. Colors are fully, if not over saturated, and fleshtones can appear a bit reddish at times. Blacks are deep and solid. Edge enhancement is apparent, as are some instances of aliasing. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD-ROM Enhancements Rating:

DVD-ROM Review:
The only features included on this title are a simple main menu, with links for the Original Web site and New Line's Hot Spot. The Original Web site includes all the information you might need to know about this film. There is a story synopsis, cast and crew biographies (actually only biographies for two of the cast and two of the crew), the original trailer, 12 still pictures from the film, quotes from reviewers, and a link to New Line's online shop. In the crew biographies section, you can also find an essay on the production of the film. When playing the movie from the PCFriendly software, you go directly to the DVD-Video main menu. This title does not have much to it, and looks very similar to the other New Line releases out there today. Giving An Affair of Love a rating of Mediocre really is being generous. (Danny Richelieu)
