If Marmite was a film.

Perhaps all we can say with confidence is that Married Unmarried is an adult work originally written as a play, the rest is subject to (heated) discussion.

Best described as an arthouse film, Married Unmarried is a character study with monologue and dialogue as the main impetus. We meet four principal characters (as two couples) and explore the connections between them.

It's fair to say the film attracts strong opinion, a quick Google search will offer numerous scathing reviews and the title was released straight to DVD -yet it's quite clear the work was intended to provoke.

By way of criticism, perhaps the most unfortunate dramatic construct we find is that of the women who enjoys male cruelty, an unwelcome stereotype to say the least, but is it sufficient grounds to brand the film misogynistic? In mitigation, we're not offered a healthy view of masculinity either, callousness is presented almost as if it were an inherent component of the male psyche.

From any angle Married Unmarried is difficult viewing; what some will see as uncompromising honesty others will find pretentious and exploitative, nevertheless it's intelligently crafted and remains worthy of investigation -and of course there's a copious amount of nudity.

Manages to make nookie boring.
Verified purchase
Pretentious, quivering-lipped British yawn-a-thon, made by people unable to see further than their own self-absorbed, middle class, suburban world. Take away the 1980s arthouse style nookie and you're left with nothing more substantial than an empty cornflakes box. Says nothing, goes nowhere.

Not for me

This didn't work for me., was all too theatrical. The adjectives that come to mind in describing it are unpleasant and pretentious in equal measure

Disturbing and brutal take on abuse within relationships
Best friends Paul (Paolo Seganti) and Danny (Ben Daniels) lead a wild life womanising and sharing a love of pornographic films, but once Paul married Amanda (Gina Bellman) and Danny started living with Kim (Kristen McMenamy) they spent their evenings playing back gammon and ignoring their partners.

Danny is the assertive force and devils advocate in this grim and disturbing take on modern relationships and sexual and psychological abuse within a partnership. Paul married Amanda to commit himself to a stable normal relationship but his intentions are challenged when he sees a past girl friend in a TV advertisement.

In many ways a sibling of "Closer" it is not nearly so deep and in comparison occasionally seems plain nasty, particularly Danny's treatment of Kim. Also whereas Paul and Danny are believable I am not convinced by the women Kim and Amanda, they are just too compliant to the whims and sexual exploitation of Danny.

Well written and directed by Noli, some very striking use of colour in the stage sets, and good acting particularly from Daniels and McMenamy there is much to recommend this brutally engrossing film.

If you appreciated "Closer" as much as I did watch this, but expect something very different and much less profound.

explicit, shocking, offensive, powerful
Of all the recent flux of relationship dramas to have been released, from Closer to We Dont Live Here Anymore, this film is the most startling if not necessarily the best. More surprisingly is that its a British feature tackling infidelity and misogyny in a way rarely seen by such a staid cinema industry that is so reliant on Hugh Grant froth and Mockney gangster tosh. Two couples who are also four friends, talk sex and jealousy between each other in frank, explicit and at times deeply offensive diatribes. The tension bristles with verbal violence as each compare and destroy their convictions on love, lust and hate. All actors concerned, especially Ben Daniels and Kristen Mcmenamy, excell in their demanding roles, beautifully photographed in striking set design and directed with an icy stillness. Recommended, but not comfortable viewing for couples.
