Sex and love. Some seek it, some need it, some spurn it and some pay for it, but we're all involved in it. Set on one afternoon on Hampstead Heath, London, the film investigates the minutiae of seven couples. What makes us tick?

Unlikely friends in a melting pot of confusion. Simon Murray fights for the French Foreign Legion. Pascal Dupont fights for himself. War torn men question honour, hope, morality...because you can desert everything...except yourself.
Timely yet terrifying, The Flood predicts the unthinkable. When a raging storm coincides with high seas it unleashes a colossal tidal surge, which travels mercilessly down England's East Coast and into the Thames Estuary. Overwhelming the Barrier, torrents of water pour into the city. The lives of millions of Londoners are at stake. Top marine engineers and barrier experts Rob, his ex-wife Sam and his father Leonard Morrison, have only a few hours to save the city from total devastation. A real probability in a real location. It is not a question of if, but when London floods. Written by
Jonathan Rutter / Matthew Sanders
Robert Carlyle lost his father (who he was close to) suddenly six weeks before filming began. The scene at the end, where Rob is crying by his father's body, was a very real emotional release for him, and was difficult for the other cast and crew to watch. See more »
There's a lot of discussion and some scenes dealing with school evacuation. However, given that the authorities' first real awareness of the danger doesn't happen till after 4 p.m., and the water doesn't hit the mouth of the estuary till after 7 p.m., the schools should be out of session for the day, and no evacuation of schools should be necessary.

I only watched the movie because Mr. Carlyle was playing in it. Even he played badly. The entire film felt like someone intended it to be a mini series and they were forced to cut it to pieces in order to make it last only 100 minutes. The scenes are going one after another at what I hoped was an alert pace but turned out to be just bad (or forced) editing.
I was actually looking forward to see a British disaster movie, one that would be a good one, not like those Hollywood violin pieces. It was a disastrous film alright, with every possible cliché taken from all the American movies of the genre, but lacking in the directions where US productions shine: editing.
Bottom line: avoid. It is not funny, it is not emotional, not intelligent and not thrilling. Just plain boring.
