Trivia

Although the film was made for just £160,000, producer-directors Gary Sinyor and Vadim Jean found it virtually impossible to raise the money for the production. It was only that the entire cast and crew worked for nothing on deferred payment salary that they were able to make the film. See more »

Goofs

At the clinic, Sidney's address is given as 228 The Drive, Edgware. However, when we see the house later, it is clearly number 7. See more »

A sad funny story that could happen to you!
27 February 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Poor Leon discovers a past that goes against everything that is Jewish. It takes a while for the story to kick start but once you get going, you fall into the flamboyance of the humour, enjoying the belly laughs, and maybe the dish as well.
