" An Alfie for the 90's" Barry Norman

This film began as a conversation in a London cab and one year later was showing in 11 first run cinemas in London. This period included shooting more footage and re-scoring following a sale to a distributor.. Who despite hampering the film with one of the worst trailers of all time sold the film all over. There are three versions (not including foreign language) the original (and best) the re-cut and a further re-cut (the worst) for American cable sales. The film was made with private investment and has been sold to America England Scandinavia Germany and Japan amongst others.
