Champagne, Intimacy, Alan


An intoxicating 20 minute short about love, intimacy, sex, marriage, life and Alan…

Champagne, Intimacy, Alan is an upcoming short film written and directed by David Martin and produced by Mini Productions. It explores the relationship between Alan & Carol Bird and their attempts to save the dwindling light of their marriage.


Alan and Carol, middle class, mid-40s, bored and terminally married, attend an upmarket swinger’s party for the first time.

At the party, held in a stunning country house, they meet Sonya, a statuesque Russian, and her intense, laconic husband Dan. Though twenty years their junior, Sonya and Dan are veterans of ‘the lifestyle’ and quickly take charge. As the couples get to know one another, something happens to change previously eager Alan’s view of the situation. Soon he finds himself questioning love, sex, marriage, life and everything.
