First-time director Venville has tempted an all-star male cast – John Hurt, Tom Wilkinson and Ray Winstone among them – to enact a script from the writing team who wrote Sexy Beast. Will the adulterous Frenchman get his just desserts from cuckolded Winstone, whose friends cheer the avenger on? A fine ensemble performance of a claustrophobic, sometimes theatrical drama, leads to a surreal climax.
A hilarious volley of quick-fire, foul-mouthed poetic banter

Worth seeing for the superb performances from its terrific cast and some enjoyably off-the-wall moments.
