Trivia

The two 'country houses' in the film, supposedly in Oxfordshire and Surrey, are actually the same building, Kenwood House in the north London suburb of Highgate. The two scenes were shot at the front and the back of the house. See more »

Incompetent and violent but occasionally endearing
28 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This being a Lindsay Shonteff film you expect the worst but by his standards it's not that bad. Repeat: BY HIS STANDARDS. Which were never terribly high. Clegg is a movie that would like to be a lot better than it is and has lofty ambitions but never has the cleverness to achieve them. The plot is mildly intriguing (old men are getting cards telling them they will soon die) but never really goes anywhere, and to say there's a lack of sympathy for the lead character would be an understatement. He gives us a voice-over narration of a fairly hackneyed nature throughout. The film really runs out of steam by the end - it's like the director couldn't think of any novel way to wrap things up. On the plus side there's some nice location shooting of 1969 London, which looks as beautiful as 1960s London always did. Hard to catch nowadays, Clegg is a movie unlikely to turn up on terrestrial TV

  • maybe on cable in the middle of the night though.
