The Independent Culture
AFTER SEVERAL promising outings in the late 1970s the career of Nastassja Kinski (right) went a bit quiet. One Night Stand (10pm Sky Premier), however, very much marks a return to form. In this gripping erotic drama, receiving its satellite premiere tonight, she plays a woman who enjoys an intense one- night stand with a happily married man (Wesley Snipes). Afterwards, they just can't stop thinking about each other. British director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas) has made a speciality out of these emotionally draining dramas.

In this era of professional rugby, there is little respite for the players as internationals keep going throughout the year. In Australia vs Ireland (11am Sky Sports 1), the first of the summer tests, the visitors will need to be at their fiery best to challenge the home team.
