Sally Potter's daring and artful meditation on the dynamics of romantic and sexual relationships stars Joan Allen as 'She' the frustrated housewife of politician, Sam Neill who meets 'He', a Lebanese doctor working as a cook in London. They soon embark on a passionate affair but it's not long before their differing political and cultural lives begin to clash. An astonishing piece of filmmaking, written, also by Sally Potter, entirely in verse.
