Storyline

Lucy (Leslie Hope), her husband Michael (Victor Ertmanis), and their business partner William (Dan Left) are the owners of a small publishing company in Toronto. The stability of their lives are thrown into an emotional maelstrom with the arrival of Sloan (Peter Outerbrige), a former boxer-turned-writer whose first book (based on a serial killer) is about to be published by their company. Sloan gets in over his head when he embarks on a steamy affair with the sexually ravenous and frustrated Lucy, who longs to re-create her S&M-filled days in Paris gone by. But Sloan soon embarks on another affair of his own with the openly gay William which leads to sexual confusion for the writer. All in the while, Lucy's befuddled husband, Michael, slowly goes crazy over learning of his wife and business partner's dalliance with his client until he decides to join in on their bed-jumping as well. Written by Larry B.

A great movie, massively underrated
22 May 2013 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

This is one of my personal all time favourites. We found it on an ex-rental DVD that was in the $1 bin somewhere or other. Took it home and had a real laugh. I would categorise this as an indie film, rather than try and classify it as "eroticism". It fits pretty nicely next to Hal Hartley for example. It's also a great movie for "writers". If you like the beat writers, Henry Miller, Rimbaud etc, or if you get into the whole drunken spoken word thing then this is a movie for you.

Hmm, what else should I say (it's been a while since I saw it). The ending is great but I'm not going to spoil it. My main gripe is that the name is pretty annoying. Makes it a hard movie to talk about. I would have called it something else.
