Storyline

London in the fifties: a young singer is the star in a night club and is the owner's protegé. The latter has also a son, Baby, who, thanks to his father's morbid attentions is considered a halfwit by everybody. An old gay gangster has Baby's father horribly killed since he wants the singer's attentions all for himself. Written by Salvatore Santangelo <pappagone2@libero.it>

Rubbish
28 January 2005 | by (Sheffield, England) – See all my reviews

I looked forward to watching this film and then realised that any hope of a coherent dialogue between the actors was swamped by the unnecessary swearing. Now I am not a prude in any way, but to shout obscenities at each other does not a good film make. Ewan Bremner is arguably one of the worst actors in the world at this time (witness his performance in the god awful Life of Stuff) & his "Cockney" accent is almost as bad as his Edinburgh accent. Avoid. How many more of these films "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Beautiful Creatures" do we have to suffer before the film makers realise that the f-word, the c- word etc does not replace proper dialogue.
