Jewish girl from the Bronx meets an Italian boy from Brooklyn at an emergency encounter group on Christmas Eve. From there develops an erratic relationship that continually erupts into near-sadistic confrontations: the girl wants to be loved but not possessed, the guy wants to possess but not love (explicitly anyway). Much of the film is taken up by the couple's violent exchanges, which at times come over as childishness; but the chauvinistic attitudes and the film's unresolved tensions make it just about worth a look (although you have to sit through a lot of ego-shit before getting your head into the overall trip).
