Storyline

Feeling Sexy is a story about Vicki, a passionate and vivacious artist with a voracious appetite for life and love. When she meets and marries medical student Greg, she feels she has found true happiness, but two kids and hours, weeks, years of house chores later soon shatter the dream. Vicki wants freedom, release and self-expression, and despite her love for Greg, falls into a lusty affair with art student Hugo. But dishonesty and deceit are not for Vicki. She fatally confesses all to Greg and home life becomes hellish, with Vicki left crushed and demoralized and Greg suspicious and mistrusting. A radical solution is called for and Vicki discovers that the answer may lie within her own creativity and imagination. Vicki is 'married with children' and caught in the universal dilemma - how do you keep the passion alive? Written by Anonymous

I love this movie!
20 December 1999 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

This fresh and deliciously funny comedy from award-winning painter, Davida Allen, shows once and for all that small is beautiful. The strength of this little charmer is that it doesn't rely on any of the film conventions that we have come to expect from much of the Hollywood fare that hits our shores. Its only 50 minutes long, but, as many of the Oz critics are commenting, it packs more into its short running time than many a film twice its length. Set in Brisbane, Australia, in the 1970's the story concerns Vicki (played by Susie Porter), a vivacious freckle-faced red-head who falls in love with Greg (Tamblyn Lord), a medical student. They get married, have two kids and Vicki soon finds that married life isn't exactly what she expected. After having an affair with Hugo she quickly works out that adultery isn't going to solve anything. The rest of the movie spends its time dealing with how Vicki can have her cake and eat it too. Without giving too much away, the answer is found in Vicki's fertile imagination. Funny, erotic and beautifully performed by Susie Porter, this film deserves all the accolades it can get. Highly recommended.
