Filmmaker’s statement

Daniel D’Alimonte says:

“Two lovers with no idea of what it’s actually like to get to the next level – I think we’ve all been here before.

While the anxiety, clumsiness and embarrassment of the situation [runs] through everybody’s mind at the time, in hindsight, it’s a scenario ripe with comedic potential.

That was my goal with this movie – finding the humour in the otherwise heavy situation.”
