Abstract:

Niccol's love stories are by turns darkly humorous, poignant and insightful: a style-obsessed architect realises it's what's on the inside that counts; a man is so preoccupied with collecting that he lets the most precious thing of all slip through his fingers; a girl's first experience of falling in love changes her view of the world; a woman comes to terms with infertility; and a man tries to swim against the tide of middle-age.
