Liz has missed an appointment to have an abortion. She has to keep her child, and neither her boyfriend Geoff nor child's father Neil are too happy about it. She can not decide which partner is better for her, and Neil makes a proposal to her when they attend the wedding of her best friend Prue and Mike. She probably prefers Geoff, but he is preoccupied with his girlfriend Bryony, who returned from abroad. Another friend, Ant, has written a script for documentary film, which is directed by a German and in which topless women, well, talk about their lives. Written by Anonymous

A genuine achievement that deserves a much wider audience
3 March 2001 | by (Kent, England) – See all my reviews

I confess to bias here, inasmuch as I'm a big fan of lead actress Danielle Cormack, but I loved this movie. It details the various interrelationships within a group of twentysomethings in Auckland and the key events in their lives that occur over a period of several months, some hilarious, some tragic. It's an exhilarating mixture of naturalistic insight and sheer absurdism, generally mundane events unfolding and being twisted into constantly tragicomic consequences. Wonderful ensemble performances (from a cast who will be very familiar to fans of TV's 'Xena: Warrior Princess,' a much less naturalistic drama but also the product of New Zealand!)give life to characters who are fully human in their self-absorption but utterly flawed understanding of their own lives. The brutal and tender moments of the film say far more about human relationships than a dozen feelgood Hollywood movies, and it's a great shame that this excellent piece of work didn't receive a major international release.

(By the way, the movie is available on tape in Canada and Region 2 DVD in Germany, including on Amazon's German site. Good luck in hunting it down).
