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

one of the best refreshing comedies ... Don't miss it
25 January 2015 | by bharath-bphcSee all my reviews

This is my first review and I am writing this because I want to assure you guys this is one the best original comedies you will ever come across.

It doesn't have a great story or a ground breaking story telling and is not a typical romantic comedy or drama or a classic (if you are looking for one). It is just a drama-comedy-romantic( yeah bit of everything ) movie about sexual fantasies and relationship which was beautifully crafted (no obscene references/jokes and nudity). All the segments/narratives are unique, funny and are close to original stories.The best part was the last segment, which was really romantic and I am sure everyone will love it.

The movie is for everyone , so if you are looking a novel comedy (not extreme ), you are going to enjoy this movie for sure. DON'T MISS IT.
