original working of a classic plot line
31 July 2011 | by (kent) – See all my reviews

Feel compelled to write this film up after seeing it at a local screening. Taking one of the classic plot lines of financial adversity and marital tensions this story updates the well travelled paths of Full Monty and Calendar girls with a nice twist on contemporary fascination and technology - namely porn and the internet.

I fully bought into the relationship angst of our two leads and loved the conceit of the credit crunch backdrop. Clever - and marks this narrative out to be viewed as a fitting record to where we are and how we get out of the mess - well some anyway. That the couple in question are gay is irrelevant - they could have been straight and the story would have still worked.

Both touching and comedic in equal measure I laughed and nearly cried with the pathos of some scenes.

Wonderfully edited, good cast, lovely turns from a wonderful sage sex shop owner, nicely written and well directed I am in awe that this film was made for £30,000.

This is a great film for all audiences. Thoroughly recommend this film. Sexy but chaste given the thrust of the narrative ...no pun intended.
