Synopsis

Steamy psychodrama Desire explores the link between sex and creativity through the story of a screenwriter struggling with a character who threatens to take over not just his creative life but his sanity.
Ralph sits alone at the top of his London house, crippled by agoraphobia, emasculated by the success of his soap-star wife Phoebe, unable to complete the screenplay that will rescue his reputation and his family.
With a deadline looming, he invites student au pair Néné from Paris to look after the children. But is she carer, muse, lover or thief?
As Ralph succumbs to his desire, Néné embarks on a passionate relationship with both husband and wife that leads all three into areas of emotional and creative trangression. Who is using whom? Who is writing the film called Desire? And where will it end?
