It is the unnamed narrator's last night with his wife and two children, whom he intends to leave the next day, although they don't know it. His wife, Susan, comes home from work while he is watching his sons, ages five and three, taking a bath. He is having an affair with Nina — "Something about her changed everything. Susan's range of feeling is narrow; she would consider it shameful to give way to her moods.

They quibble, and the narrator is about to say, "Susan, can't you see that, of all the nights we have spent together, this is the last one — the last one of all? She says it will be an opportunity to discuss "things. He thinks of a conversation he had with his friend Asif, who refused to lie to Susan when the narrator asked him to cover up his assignation with Nina. That life is a struggle, and that struggle gets you nowhere.

That there is little pleasure in marriage; that it is like doing a job one hates. He strokes her back and thinks that if she wakes up, puts out her arms, and says she loves him, he will never leave. But she moves away from him. As he masturbates in the bathroom, he hears a noise and pulls up his pants. It's his younger son, half-asleep. The narrator carries the boy downstairs and changes his wet nappy.

He is about to lay the boy down in his bed when he has the strange feeling that he is looking at himself. Will be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Our beautiful project

A few months ago, I saw some of the rushes, but I have seen no cut material. Now the film is almost finished, with most of the scenes in their definitive order and a good deal of the music in place. The only missing scene is the final one, where the characters played by Kerry Fox and Mark Rylance meet for the last time. Although he and I worked closely together at times, and the film was shot in English, the script was written by his own writer, a woman, in French. I had decided I'd spent long enough with the material and lacked the heart to look at it again.

“Intimacy” by Hanif Kureishi

Read the Review. It is the saddest night, for I am leaving and not coming back. Tomorrow morning, when the woman I have lived with for six years has gone to work on her bicycle, and our children have been taken to the park with their ball, I will pack some things into a suitcase, slip out of my house hoping that no one will see me, and take the tube to Victor's place. There, for an unspecified period, I will sleep on the floor in the tiny room he has kindly offered me, next to the kitchen. Each morning I will heave the thin single mattress back to the airing cupboard. I will stuff the musty duvet into a box.
