A budding, if a bit loony, young screenwriter Ant, is told, by
his women friends, that his latest effort is worthless, and is
tossed onto the beach at Piha. It is picked up by a visiting German
who takes it back to a German screenwriter, and it becomes
'Topless Women Talk About Their Lives'. Liz is pregnant, but she
has split up with the father whom she doesn't love (and vice
versa) and is now with cute but vapid Geoff. This is a film with
characters mostly in their late twenties, zany and fumbling -
mostly when it comes to sex. The ending will have you
wondering if the plot is turning dark, but I will only say that
it doesn't. Recommended.
