However, after burning his drafts, his publisher shows him a newspaper with an account of events just like his forbidden story.

Eventually, the voyeuristic husband and the exhibitionist wife confess their secrets to each other and realize how silly they’ve been when they were clearly made for each other.

MARCIAL’S VERSION juxtaposes reality with illusion, in a manner reminiscent of the ‘Film Noir’ style of the 40’s. Filmed in the underbelly of Buenos Aires, the film plunges the viewer in the murky investigation of a crime where love, money and betrayal are all intricately woven together. With seductive strains of Tango in the background, the viewer is jarred by the counterpoint between Marcial's discourse - his version of the events as told to the police - versus the truth on the screen.

Jason Lescalleet had asked me to work on a video for his SONGS ABOUT NOTHING record, to be a part of a larger series of videos to accompany each track on the album. I thought the presence of the truck (bathed in the 'blue-eyed' Californian sun) would be a convincing nod to Lescalleet's inspiration for the album, which was Big Black's SONGS ABOUT FUCKING (featuring the lead track The Power of Independent Trucking).

The cover version has always been a staple of the pop charts. Yet it's often been viewed as the poor relation of writing your own songs. This film challenges and overturns that misconception by celebrating an exciting, underrated musical form that has the power to make or break an artist's career. Whether as tribute, reinterpretation or as an act of subversion, the extraordinary alchemy involved in covering a record can create a new, defining version - in some cases, even more original than the original.
2004: The Stupid Version is a satirical documentary written by Armando Iannucci, broadcast in two parts on BBC Three on New Year's Eve 2004. The one-off programme is a parody of review programmes typically broadcast at New Year. It features edited footage from news and television series, as well as satires on the politics and fads of a year in which "only Andrew Marr kept his dignity". The documentary was shown again on BBC Two on 29 January 2005, but has not been repeated since or released on DVD, although clips are available on the internet. Iannucci's 2006 series Time Trumpet follows a similar format to The Stupid Version, reviewing events satirically from a future perspective.
