So I'm on a plane across the atlantic. I'd never heard of this film. The write-up in the in-flight magazine made it sounds quite good so I watched it. I was very disappointed. It was just awful. There were only two good things in it: Alun Armstrong, and the way that Ewan McGregor really looked like he was playing the bass. The rest of the acting was dreadful, but I expect this was largely down to the clumsy script. Almost every scene is rigid - there is not a moment when you forget that these people are actors. The storyline is incredibly thin, the characters are very one-dimensional, the direction is sometimes like a student film.
On an eleven hour flight, I actually felt like I wasted an hour and a half of my time watching this film.
