Storyline

Nina, a successful but world-weary art dealer, is surprised to find that her usual masseur, Douglas, has sent a substitute - Fitch - to provide her with her regular weekly massage at her home. Nina and Fitch find that they are both mutually attracted, and annoy one another a great deal. Their differences of temperament and lifestyle create friction, and they find their similarities nearly as grating. Through flashbacks we learn how Nina and Fitch have arrived at this meeting, and see that perhaps they have enough common ground to learn some important lessons from each other. Written by David E. Frank <def@cray.com>

Trivia

When Fitch tells Nina about the history of massage, he mentions that the Greek philosopher "Plato lived to be 104", to which Nina replies that the philosopher "Socrates did not". In actuality, research shows that Plato lived to be 80, while Socrates lived to be 71. See more »

How to have body contact and remain distant
10 September 2002 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

What thoughts would go through two strangers minds after initially bypassing the social preliminaries and going to intimate contact and then getting to know each other better? The intimation is that maybe they would like to take the relation further, but professional ethics require them to escape to the past, so as to almost avoid the present. The sexual tension is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

Roeg does his usually excellent job of mixing the erotic with the everyday and making it seem completely natural.
