Indeed! The song they listen to goes on repeating this line,when the couple is dancing in the dark,and the husband has a very strange way of loving his wife:a military man,he acts with her as he would do with his men:not necessarily the spit and polish thing but rather a daily report of what she did every minute of the day.The scenes when he writes on his book absolutely everything that she saw,everyone she met and everywhere she went make the audience ill-at -ease. Is it really jealousy?He never alludes to a possible lover and himself's got a crush on a CD players dealer's wife.
The style might recall Kenneth Loach,but we deal here with middle-class people even if their lives circle around the pub.Narration differs from Loach's linear stories.Fragmented scenes make the movie often hard to follow.But anyway,you won't lose your time if you choose to make acquaintance with Liam and Tina.
