Another rare gem from UK

Yes,I am glad to have caught this little British noir, written by Juilan Wintle - the author of AVENGERS TV series, among other films and TV shows - and telling the story of two brothers, one musician and the other one...

I will let you find out; the title may tell something about the plot. Tense, taut, vivid little film, that keeps some surprise for you, is worth seeing for an audience in search for rare movies from the other side of the Channel. There are so many to purchase.

The director essentially worked for TV, and his classic features are not very known.
