Mini Review - The Little Death

The Little Death (out Sep 25) is like Love Actually in the sense that's a group of interwoven short stories that blend comedy and drama. The catch is that it's centred on sexual fetishes. It's taking chances and there's a great final sequence (involving a deaf man) but some of the darker moments don't work. The characters stop acting like “real people” and the humour doesn’t feel natural. Grade: B-.
