Paul Barton (Stephen Shellen) is a sociology student working on his master's thesis with the idea of making videotapes that probe the secret behind successful relationships between men and women. While taking his video camera around campus he meets Jeanne (Marie Laurin), with whom he falls

madly in love. She is also attracted to him but finds his reliance on the camera annoying. Shellen gives a wonderfully manic performance, interacting with his camera like a man possessed. When TALKING WALLS plays on that high energy level, it is paradoxically both fascinating and uncomfortable to

watch. But director Stephen Verona goes heavy on the cheesecake sex, exploiting it for laughs rather than looking beneath the surface. Both Shellen and the movie's point become lost as the story's focus veers from comedy to psychology to formula romance.
