It's the morning after John and Mary's first sexual encounter with each other, which took place in his New York City loft apartment. They had only met for the first time the previous evening at a crowded trendy pick-up bar. They are both uncomfortable with the situation but don't want to show that discomfort to the other. They both realize that they don't know anything substantial about the other - including not even knowing each other's name - as each tries through whatever secret means to find out with who he/she just slept. As they slowly find out more about the other, they inject their own perception into the information, which is sometimes not quite reality. Over the next few hours, they, together and individually, will try to determine if there is any potential future for them, which includes their thoughts about the current most significant other in their respective lives, one who is more significant than the other, and their feelings about what they think the other person is ...Written by
The magazine in Mary's apartment which John is seen reading is the quarterly British film magazine "Sight And Sound"; it is the Winter 1968/9 issue. Whilst this was the current issue at the time of filming, it is perhaps not a coincidence that it contains a detailed and highly laudatory article about "Rosemary's Baby", starring Mia Farrow, and a rave review of "Bullitt", directed by Peter Yates.

The great thing is, if men can cook at all, women think it's wonderful.
Well, it is.
No, it's not. It's really a legend. Like sex and black men.

I know, this is just a small movie, but one that I'm able to see again and again, mainly because of little things as the bright blue sky upon Mia Farrow eating an apple or the original egg-cups in Dustin Hoffman's kitchen. It's difficult to explain but I love every moment of this movie without a strong reason: this is to me as an old family photo, not perfect, but still so dear... Then: good actors, original script, with refreshing ironic touches, and really beautiful set.
