The Comfort of Strangers
Directed by Paul Schrader
Mary (Natasha Richardson) and Colin (Rupert Everett) first fell in love on a romantic holiday in Venice, Italy. Now four years later, they have returned to rekindle their romance and determine where their relationship is headed. What they don't know is why an English-speaking Venetian (Christopher Walken Pulp Fiction) is following them, watching them, and taking pictures. Soon they learn they are involved in a bizarre tale of sex, voyeurism, deception and passion. Oscar® winner Helen Mirren plays Walken's wife in a film that will take you into the dark world of charming yet dangerous strangers.
Written by the great Harold Pinter from a novel by Ian McEwan, the film was directed by Paul Schrader (director of American Gigolo and Blue Collar, and writer of Taxi Driver).

I share your sentiment - one of my favourite films of the 90s. I have the German Koch Blu-ray, and besides from a massive amount of speckles and debris, the transfer is actually quite beautiful and film-like looking.
