Bizarre, but Wonderful...
16 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just seen this film for the first time from a friends recommendation, and I can say it was a joy to see!! It breaks all the rules and is a thinking persons film...It is well worth seeing...Amanda Ray King is stunning in the role of Beatrice & totally original. Billy Connolly is also good in his brief but well cast appearance as Alibius...and hat's off to the late great Ian Drury as De Flores.

Having seen this film I have would love to see more of Thompson's work, especially, 'A Place To Stay'. Where can I get this film as I have looked everywhere?

All I can say to this director is...More!! More!!
