We've seen it a hundred times before - boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back, and they live happily ever after. Until the credits roll. And after that, it's a completely different story.
Seven long-time friends get together for a dinner. When they decide to share with each other the content of every text message, email and phone call they receive, many secrets start to unveil and the equilibrium trembles.
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
With The Little Death I feel like we've finally turned a corner with Australian films - especially comedies. Writer/Director Josh Lawson has put together a brilliantly funny, original film that needs to be seen.
The Little Death examines several suburban Austalian couples' and how their sex lives and fantasies affect their relationships. As Josh's character Paul mentions in a scene, "Whatever happened to good old, run of the mill sex? People have to complicate it with all this kinky stuff".
Each couple have a fascinating, hilarious, heart-warming story that never seems over the top. This movie is laugh-out-loud hilarious, and I can't remember the last time we got that in an Australian comedy. Do yourself a favour - do not miss this movie!!!
