Storyline

After the birth of two children Simon's (Joel Edgerton) marriage to Pam (Danielle Cormack) is becoming a bore in which the only climactic feelings he has involve an unfortunate new tendency for premature ejaculation. He develops an interest in another young mother, Katrien (Rhona Mitra), whose husband Klaus has been cheating on her. The world of young married parents in Wellington is fast leading to a whole new breed of men: the men of 'Separation City'. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Funny, real, touching.

I loved it. A great cast. Joel Edgerton is especially magical to watch. The cinematography is worth it alone. How beautiful is New Zealand! Scenes in Berlin were lovely too. Lots of laughs but some serious topics raised.
