Alright, that is actually a lie. Instead Michael Winterbottom has made what may well be an unreleasable sex’n’concert film where a young couple er couple, each of their no holds barred sex scenes are seperated by the nine gigs they see as their relationship develops. The downside. Words like Primal Scream and Super Furry Animals are mooted. They also, and probably conveniently for soundtracking purposes, go to a Michael Nyman concert. “I’m very pleased to be in the most sexually explicit film in British film history,” said Nyman from Berlin yesterday, “especially as I am not doing anything sexual. I can’t wait to see it.” (Guardian story seems oddly more sympathetic than the BBC one).

And to be fair, even if it is rubbish, it won’t be worse that 31 Songs, the movie.
