    Valentine’s Day has come and gone. For some, there could have been a first date. For others, it was celebrating with loved one. And for many, the evening probably ended with sex. It could have been someone’s first time or another couples' routine. But how many of us have thought about the conversations after sex? We all have them, but the conversations differ between straight and gay couples, friends who experiment or those who are bi-curious. There’s also the swingers, the cheaters, the liars and lovers, the virgins and strangers – people all coping with common emotions of this physical pleasure: laughter and pleasure, confusion and anger, as well as the toughest of all - regret. After Sex explores the conversations between eight couples in a "short play" kind of way. This is one intimate film that will appeal to the curiosity of many as it dives into conversations of the unknown. For many viewers, it may give a glimpse as to “just what it’s like” to have a conversation after an encounter with someone in the manner this film portrays.

    With an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, this movie appears to be shot with HD cameras. It’s free of grain and while some noise exists, it’s not distracting. Image depth and resolution appear good, although there are few instances of the original photography appearing out of focus. Colour accuracy looks fine and surprisingly for Anchor Bay, compression artefacts are kept to a minimum. Overall, a pleasing image.

    The 5.1 soundtrack is as basic as it gets. It’s dialogue and center channel driven. Dialogue is intelligible and well integrated. Music and the mild effect appear in the remainder of channels. What’s not so great about this soundtrack is its thin tonal quality. The opening song during the title sequence is lifeless. Bass is non-existent – you’d never think there was a kick drum or bass guitar in the song. Yikes.

    No featurettes on this disc.


    IN THE END...

    After Sex will peak curiosity. The conversations are intriguing. It’s a title worth checking out and I think it’s one of more interesting titles released by Anchor Bay in a long while.
