"Among the most beautiful and painful of Australian movies" – David Stratton

Australian auteur Paul Cox delivers one of his most personal and emotional films in this scaldingly intimate portrait of a marriage collapsing, made shortly after the director experienced a painful break-up. The result is a self-lacerating critique of artistic self-indulgence that doubles as a moving and inventively beautiful work of cinema.

John’s happy life as a composer and family man collapses when his wife Helen says she’s leaving him. She’s having an affair with one of his friends, but that’s just a symptom of the long-ignored problems in their marriage. John (John Hargreaves) becomes morose, unpredictable, and potentially violent after Helen (Wendy Hughes) moves out with their daughter Lucy (Lucy Angwin).
