The beauty of this movie is that you, as the reader of the subtitles, are the only one who knows what is going on. The woman and the two men all speak different languages. It is a comedy of errors up until the end.

It takes viewers on an intimate road trip across North America - from a polyamory conference in the Catskills, a swingers' convention in Las Vegas, to long-term multipartner families in California. Along the way, the filmmakers try to learn from these relationship veterans, while navigating their own fledgling polyamorous relationships. The results are as giddy, painful, sad and loving as real life tends to be. Written by
I was very pleasantly surprised to see this documentary on the TV (here in Australia!) the other week.
"When Two Won't Do" is a documentary about polyamory, which refers to relationships between more than two people. It is an absolutely amazing documentary on the subject!
I missed the beginning 25 minutes or so, but the rest was absolutely fantastic. It showed the difficulties, the joys, the successes and failures of two people, Maureen & David, exploring polyamory, with one particularly sad and moving occurrence involving the death of one of their partners.
I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to know more about polyamory. I can't speak highly enough of it!
... I'm just hoping that SBS will screen it again sometime so I can see all of it, including the first 25 minutes that I missed!
