Nine Songs

The most sexually explicit (mainstream, the UK has a flourishing porn industry) British film ever got its Cannes premiere yesterday. This sounds like the sort of thing I want to do with Mary Tales (when I settle down from doing nudey pinups and start telling stories)- romance that doesn’t gloss over the sex.

Derek Malcolm, the Guardian’s veteran film writer, said: “Nine Songs looks like a porn movie, but it feels like a love story. The sex is used as a metaphor for the rest of the couple’s relationship. And it is shot with Winterbottom’s customary sensitivity.”
