Couples and Robbers

UK, 1981 (MIFF 1982)

Director: Clare Peploe

At their wedding ceremony, Morris and Wendy lose the ring, their friends and their hopes. All they long for are the basic essentials of middle-class life — a video-recorder a Magi-mix blender, a potted palm — but somehow these things are more elusive than they imagined, especially as their only wedding present is two tickets for the ballet.

Clare Peploe has worked on the production of a number of films, as well as writing for the screen. She also worked on the production of 1900 and co-scripted La Luna, both of which were directed by her husband, Bernardo Bertolucci.
