Separation City

Directed by Australian-based New Zealander Paul Middleditch and written by kiwi humourist Tom Scott, Separation City is a tale of marriage, bad sex and requited love.

Simon (Joel Edgerton) is a decent bloke, living in smug and comfortable suburbia with two children and sex life on hold, who falls for his wife's friend Katrien (Brit actress Rhona Mitra). While their marriages fall apart (to Danielle Cormack and Thomas Kretschmann, respectively), the pair begin an infatuation. They fumble a number of opportunities until a meticulously planned clandestine rendezvous in Berlin turns into a wild and crazy farce that threatens to rip their lives apart...

Charming at moments but uneven in tone and peopled by caricatures.

Scott can write a stunning gag, but not until the very end of this film did I hear one conversation between a man and a woman that sounded like anything adults might actually say to each other.
