4 short stories about romance and pick-up lines

Michelangelo Antonioni’s final feature saw the great man co-directing with Wim Wenders (who also aided Nicholas Ray on 1980 swansong Lightning Over Water).

A rumpolite Red Shoe Diaries for people who buy their erotica at Waitrose. Includes lengthy Making Of.
