I can scarcely believe such a fine piece of film is an advertisement. Clearly, its central theme is the strength and conviction of two women desperate to stay fit and clean in a world where dirty street urchins roam freely, tempting the righteous with their insidious olive oil and otherworldly "dreaming" bread. When their resolve is overwhelmed and they partake of the forbidden loaf, one can't help but share in the heartbreaking defeat of good at the hands of evil. Thank you, three-way sex romping olive oil, for reminding us of the true meaning of hunger. You can bet I'll be buying your olive oil, but never without a tear in my eye. 1 star
