What starts out as a weekly anonymous tryst between a divorced man and a married woman turns into a searing portrait of loneliness and emotional need. Directed by Patrice Chereau (Queen Margot), Intimacy won the Golden Bear for Best Film at the 2001 Berlin Film Festival where lead actress Kerry Fox also won the Best Actress Award. Based on Hanif Kureishi’s controversial novel, Intimacy was selected to play at the Sundance and New York Film Festivals.
Intimacy is a 2001 France/United Kingdom/Germany/Spain drama film by Patrice Chéreau and written by Patrice Chéreau, Anne-Louise Trividic and Hanif Kureishi.
Jay (Mark Rylance) is a London bartender who has casual sex with a mysterious woman (Kerry Fox) every Wednesday. He becomes more curious about her life and begins watching her every move when they are apart. This has unintended consequences on their relationship.
The film is considered controversial by some as the sex scenes contain unsimulated oral sex performed by Fox. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intimacy_%282001_film%29 [Oct 2004]
