Description Divorced working woman Alex and well-to-do Jewish family doctor Daniel Hirsh share not only the same answering service but also the favours of young Bob Elkin who bed-hops between them as the mood takes him. Both Alex and Dr Hirsh are aware of the other's existence but prefer to live with the situation rather than risk losing Elkin completely. But a wet winter weekend in London can be difficult.

    this song is probably composed by Ron Geesin and might be included into this album: but I'm just guessing...

    Seriously, the song on this trailer is amazing. Anyone able to find out what it is yet?

    Adult fair, how about that! And a gay twist that for once wasn't criminally stereotyped or toxic. Two things always bug me about it. The awful ringing telephones, and god they were awful. And Jackson's smugness. Otherwise stylish thoughtful film.

    Somebody needs to find out the name of this track -- it's pretty incredible piece of music
  • Marillionboy 2013-01-14 22:07:11
    Its an amazing track isn't it but I think its a library track as I asked the composer of the score and he'd never heard the piece before.

    Wonderful music. Anyone know the name, author of the track? IMDB soundtrack info only references the classical pieces. This is some awesome experimental stuff....
