From the director of La Reine Margot, Patrice Chéreau. The film marks not only the first English language film fro the fames french director, but also the film debut for British theatre actor Mark Rylance. The film is a full-frontal, full penetration, exploration of a sexual relationship between two strangers. And the two leads perform those sexual scenes with total realism.
A tortured reflection on the complex relationship between love, sex, desire and obsession, in which a man and a woman embark on secret sexual liaisons every Wednesday afternoon in a grimy London flat.
