My Year Without Sex

My Year Without Sex is a funny kind of love story and black comedy about an Australian family dealing with all the big questions and even more of the small ones.

When Natalie (Sacha Horler) collapses one August day and undergoes emergency surgery for an aneurysm, her husband Ross (Matt Day), their two children face an uncertain future. Set over one messy year, the family navigate nits, faith, Christmas, job insecurity, footy practice and more nits.

Reviews & comments

Better than the title suggests

The title makes sense within the film, but it's sill not a very good title. THe film looks cheaply made, and dated -- which may be intentional. But the people are like your neighbours or your family, and the way they behave is ilke the people you know would behave. Sneaks up on you, and ni the end, this is a good film.

Sprinkled with such real characters and a few observations (I like the one about the biggest taxpayers list should replace the published rich lists), the film has intermittent traction, but it lacks the grip of a strong story. We get to care for the characters, but would like to have understood them better, got to know them better. Too many scenes are mere snapshots that don't allow the characters to fully flower before us - with the exception of Natalie.

There's a strong sense that raising a family now comes with unforeseen difficulties. A year without sex is actually one of the lesser challenges that Watt tackles, with stout heart and a rich instinct for human comedy.

Funny, moving, tense and entertaining, it's a strong follow-up to the sublime Look Both Ways.
