Four Londoners - obiturist Dan, stripper Alice, photographer Anna and dermatologist Larry - adrift in the anonymity of a big city meet by chance. They come together, fall apart, swap partners, love and hurt one other in an entangled web of sex and angst that spans years. An elegantly written, unflinchingly honest exposé of the way people love and hate, told only through scenes of initial connection and destructive separation. Closer is a bleak analysis of sex, love, truth, betrayal and hypocrisy that proves how little separates modern urban life from primitive barbarism.
