Film: The Sadness of Sex

This is a strange little ten-part film about a "dramatic love story." Of course, these things never have happy endings. Here is their explanation of the film:
This poignant comedy about love is from Rupert Wainwright (Stigmata) and stars Peta Wilson and Barry Yourgrau.

It traverses the hilarious and outrageous journey of a hopeless romantic along a stream of consciousness, riding the cycle of passion, romance, laughter and the seemingly inevitable, heartwrenching breakup. Interweaving dream logic with everyday reality, it dives headfirst into the craziness and contradictions of sexual relations between men and women, the soulful search for understanding and love.
It's often a very melodramatic video poem. But it's oddly entertaining.

Here is the first installment:

Some of the installments have nudity and very suggestive scenes, but there is nothing terribly graphic. You can view the rest of them at I-Film.
