Scenes of a Sexual Nature (15)

Maybe Ed Blum was hoping to prove that film-making is a walk in the park: his directorial debut consists entirely of seven couples strolling very slowly around Hampstead Heath and chatting very slowly about their relationships. The impressive cast includes Ewan McGregor, Adrian Lester, Gina McKee, Hugh Bonneville and Catherine Tate (the screenplay is by Aschlin Ditta, co-writer of The Catherine Tate Show).

But the directing is defiantly flair-free, and if you bugged seven real conversations on the Heath at random, you'd wouldn't hear anything as unconvincing or as vapid as the arch banter in Scenes of a Sexual Nature.
