A very intelligent and subtle film – all who took part are to be commended
Scenes of a Sexual Nature is a very intelligent and subtle film. It is
skilfully crafted, beautifully shot and with superb acting. Only the
most jaded and cynical could fail to appreciate this film the best
film I have seen so far this year.
It is film that has many twists and turns, some more obvious than
others, but even the obvious twists are still enjoyable. Not a lot
happens in the film, the pace is slow and meandering but not so slow
that ones interest is lost and it never becomes dull. The film examines
the minutia of various relationships with great tenderness and wit and
like they say the Devil is in the detail. It is the small things that
give meaning relationships are more often damned or celebrated
because of the minutia rather than the big gestures. It is the
day-to-day content that either holds relationships together or tares
This film, which in turn is offers us charm, humour, sadness and
pathos, offers no great thrills, shocks or drama (one can't help
wondering how many people did not see this film at the cinema because
of the title or in deed how many went because of the title and were
disappointed not to find what they thought they would) nor any great
love story, it is not a film that paints large more like a small
water colour but like some water colours it is non-the-less beautifully
All who took part are to be commended.
