He wakes up in her bed. He's Josh, an Australian photographer living in London, on holiday in Sydney, leaving in three days. She's Cinthia (Cin), a dress designer. They've met at a party and shared a cab back to their respective places, they're attracted to each other, he'll be gone in three days (no complications), so he stays the night. Each of them talks to the camera occasionally, commenting on what happens; so do her female friends and his male ones. An omniscient taxi driver also helps out. How will those three days go? What could be better than sex?Written by
Great, very funny, very sexy - possibly better than sex
I've just returned home from seeing the movie and well I cannot disagree with the previous few comments - it is very good.
Being an Ozzie I enjoyed David Wenham's performances on the TV series Seachange for instance but always found him a bit uncertain in his character - a point to which many women apparently disagree. I preferred his scabrous performances in Cosi and Boys for instance. But this film has expanded my appreciation of David - here he excels himself in a role Seachange fans will recognise, as a similar laid back very witty guy. Suzie Porter is a bubble of energy.
The two characters do have a chemistry and the sex scenes are very realistic without being revealing. They also have the usual neuroses - I loved the initial thoughts when they were in the taxi, at first daring themselves to start something and wondering if the other person was interested and then starting to worry about what they could be getting themselves into - all in the space of a minute without a word exchanged between them
I also loved the taxi driver - a very wise woman - who guides Josh through the stages of his developing relationship - telling him what she (Cin) is feeling and encouraging him to reveal his thoughts - almost as if she was a spider on the wall!
My slight disagreeances were Josh's departure outside the comforts of Cin's place to think etc (it jarred) and sometimes the music was overpowering but these are small quibbles.
Anyway highly recommended!
