Synopsis

Reviews

 
"Foreplay" is a black comedy in three acts, explores the relationship of an economically well-out but emotionally insecure couple. They take an off-season holiday on a New Age refuse island, supposedly to improve their sex lives. "My Italian Wife" is a light-hearted, at times tongue-in-cheek, description of the mind-set and preoccupations of second generation Italian immigrants. There is self-mocking wit, flashy dialogue and multi-level insight into the problems confronting the characters. You don't have to be Italian to recognize yourself in them.
