Overview

A handful of couples discuss their romantic and erotic tribulations on a sunny afternoon in this romantic comedy drama. It's a beautiful day in London, and a number of people head out to Hampstead Heath Park to enjoy the weather, though not every couple on hand is as comfortable as the weather might suggest. Julia Gina McKee and Gerry Hugh Bonneville are having a picnic as part of a blind date, but they don't seem to be enjoying one another's company. Billy Ewan McGregor and Brian Douglas Hodge are a gay couple at a crossroads -- Billy wants to settle down and adopt a child, but Brian doesn't believe this will stop his partner's chronic infidelity. Iris Eileen Atkins and Eddie Benjamin Whitrow were an item many years ago, but aren't sure what to make of one another when they meet by chance in the park. Sara Catherine Tate and Pete Adrian Lester discover how much they care for one another just as they're on the verge of divorce. Jamie Andrew Lincoln finds he has some explaining to do when his wife Molly Holly Aird catches him ogling a pretty young woman Eglantine Rembauville who is inadvertently exposing her underwear. Ludo Nick Sidi and Anna Sophie Okonedo are a couple whose romance doesn't seem fated to live out the day. And Noel Tom Hardy is a lecherous sort who is looking for a woman as interested in sex as he is. Scenes of a Sexual Nature was the first feature film from director Edward Blum; the picture was shot on a shoestring budget, with the actors being paid union scale in exchange for a share of the film's profits.

    'Scenes of a Sexual Nature': not a disclaimer but a joy

    The British have done it again - successfully shown how talent, ensemble attitude, prudent production values, and esprit de corps can result in a first class thoughtful comedy of life. A first outing for writer Aschlin Ditta and director Ed Blum, this entertaining, intelligent and beautifully wrought film is a veritable showcase of some of Britain's finest actors. The concept is a simple one: one sunny afternoon on Hampstead Heath overlooking London the camera moves among seven couples acting out the sexual overtones of relationships. No, there is no graphic action here: it is absolutely unnecessary, so candid and intelligent is the script. The couples we meet are 1) Eileen Atkins and Benjamin Whitrow, two alone, aging characters whose proclivity for weekly visits to the same bench result in a courtship dance of sorts 2) Andrew Lincoln and Holly Aird discussing their rather dry state of marriage as Andrew's eyes understandably caress the beautiful Eglantine Rembauville-Nicolle reading Camus nearby, causing a crack in the couple's marriage 3) Sophie Okenedo distraught at a breakup is consoled then seduced by flippant Tom Hardy 4) Adrian Lester and Catherine Tate are in the final paper stages of divorce, trying to overcome their feelings for their frolicking little daughter 5) Ewan McGregor and Douglas Hodge are a gay couple contemplating adoption despite McGregor's character's wandering eye 6) Hugh Bonneville and Catherine Tate banter the fragility of a first date over lunch and wine and distrust and Polly Walker 'sells' her time and attentions to willing buyer Mark Strong. The phrase on the cover of the very well made DVD states it well: 'Sex and love. Some seek it, some need it, some spurn it and some pay for it, but we're all involved in it'. In addition to the pleasure of watching these superb actors ply their trade in these small vignettes the cinematography, editing, and musical score underline the spontaneous feeling of Ditta and Blum's concept. It is a pure joy to watch - even the informative dialog in the added features that accompany this delightful DVD. Grady Harp
