By Tom Charity from LOVEFiLM
Michael Winterbottom may have made the most sexually explicit film ever to receive a mainstream UK release, but it's also a touchingly emotional portrait of an all-too-brief romance with an achingly hip soundtrack.

A study in human relationshipsBy Sarah Thomson from Glasgow, Scotland , 30 Mar 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]What better way to monitor the relationship between two people than through their sex life? This film does exactly that, watching the different ways the couple explore & abuse each other as their feelings are born, grow, change & in the end die. You could say the sex is another way of charting the life of the average person. The backdrop of the gigs also follows this pattern. They provide a distraction from the sex & time for the viewer to reflect on what the film is saying about the couple at that point in time. The sex is strong, graphic & real. It is most certainly not for the prudish. The film is interesting, sexy & touching in places.

Graphic pornBy a customer , 29 Apr 2013Graphic porn disguised as a film. No plot, character development or reason to watch. Even the live bands didn't make up for it. Fine if you want to watch porn.....
Sex and (prescription) drugs and rock 'n' roll....By BBush (16 reviews) , 20 Apr 2013I can't imagine anyone watching this film without having some idea what to expect but what they get is a series of droning bands and de trop sex scenes - though the ejaculation is a bit of an eye-opener. Truly a come-down from the man who made the superb 'Welcome To Sarajevo' and the interesting 'C*** and Bull Story' (which could be this film's sub-title,really.) But he has always been an erratic director and I imagine his forthcoming 'Carry On Up Raymond's Revue Bar' will also be divisive.
disgusting and terribleBy a customer , 16 Apr 2013This film is nothing but a porno. no storyline, bad acting, and extremely graphic. this should not be classed as a drama, not at all. if you`re looking for porn then its probably your type of thing. if you`re looking for something watchable, dont bother. I switched this off a third of the way through
Don't let ratings put you offBy a customer , 12 Apr 2013Almost didn't watch this given some of the reviews, and am so glad I gave it a try. It's essentially like watching a fly-on-the-wall documentary and, like many in this vein, it can be a little painful to watch at times. It reminded me of myo own early sexual relationships where the emphasis is on the physical / sensual / experimental. There's no story to speak of, so don't go expecting one. Just sit back and follow the path of two young people in an early, full-on relationship. It will also help significantly if you are into the music scene, given that about half the film is taken up at live gigs.
Sex and Music. Awesome!!By Soosal (20 reviews) , 23 Mar 2013This film is what it is. It does not masquerade as anything. Two like minded humans connecting through music and an awesome sex life. Touching, beautiful and ultimately very sad. That's life!!
