Storyline

The Little Death is a truly original comedy about sex, love, relationships and taboo. In a multi story narrative, we peer behind the closed doors of a seemingly normal suburban street. A woman with a dangerous fantasy and her partners struggle to please her. A man who begins an affair with his own wife without her knowing anything about it. A couple struggling to keep things together after a sexual experiment spins out of control. A woman who can only find pleasure in her husband's pain. A call centre operator caught in the middle of a dirty and chaotic phone call. And the distractingly charming new neighbour who connects them all. The little Death explores why do we want what we want? How far will we go to get it? What are the consequences of that fleeting moment of sexual ecstasy? Written by Anonymous

The Little Death - 8/10
19 February 2015 | by marc-243-908594See all my reviews

I've seen my fair share of comedies, to be honest its one of my favourite genre of film and television. However, when I sat down with my fiancé to watch The Little Death, I didn't quite expect the disturbing hilarity which ensued.

IMDb describes the film as "a truly original comedy about sex, love, relationships and taboo." and I would certainly agree with them. Write and director, Josh Lawson (Anchorman 2), perfectly combines the awkwardness of discussing sex and fetishes with a funny and provocative insight into the lives of these fictional couples.

From foot fetishes to rape fantasies, nothing is off limits here and the unfortunate involvement of a sign language translator in a sex chat call tops it off perfectly and had me dreading the next scene for fear of my sides actually splitting.

In simple terms, The Little Death is a humorous take on some moderately serious views on modern day sex and gives the more vanilla viewer an insight into the lives of people who could easily be our neighbours.

My vote, 8/10. Just watch out for the resident sex offender, Gollywogs can be a frightening distraction....
