Separation City is a bittersweet comedy drama about falling out of love for the very first time. A painful lesson about how unrequited love lasts forever and while requited love comes with a use-by date. A story about courtship, mateship and jumping ship. A film for anyone who has ever been in a relationship and woken up beside someone they once adored beyond measure and thought even fleetingly, is this it? Note that some torrid bedroom sex scenes gives this its "M" rating. Worth a view, even though exhibiting a few stumbles and I wish it had an English subtitle option.

Censor Rating: M - Review rating: B-
