                                 Citation:
For its sensitive portrayal of a woman caught between an abusive  
husband and an
     impotent lover, in the process illuminating our understanding of human
    relationships. The film stood out for its unflinching realism and strong
      performances that brought alive the complexity of a woman's quest for
                                fulfillment.
