Dual Balls

UK, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Fiction)

Director: Dan Zeffe

An uptight primary school teacher reluctantly agrees to try out a pair of vibrating 'love eggs' just as the headmistress decides to surprise her with an impromptu job interview.

This is a light and silly, but extremely well executed and performed English comedy from the BBC and Channel 4 that cleverly manages to ruffle the feathers of its own middle class English conservatism. Some classic moments, this film is very easy to watch.
