Movie Memories is the ongoing feature in which we ask famous people: What naked man movie moment sticks out (ahem) in your mind the most?
This week, pop star Róisín Murphy turns the clock back to 1973 and remembers the infamous love scene from Nicolas Roeg’s ghostly thriller Don’t Look Now, starring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland.
“My weird friends showed me this movie when I was 14. I remember a lot of sniggering going on because the word was the sex was real!” she says. “Whether real or not the scene is incredibly visceral. All the sweat and strain. It’s so sexy because the characters are married. Everyday marital sex is inter-cut with mundane images of them getting dressed after the sex. We were all in love with Julie Christie.”
And what of reports that Róisín plans to create her own Movie Memories for a future music video? “I would love to do a love scene with a great actor,” she says. “Though it would have to be directed by Nicolas Roeg.”
