Trivia

Directors Ray Burdis and 'Dominic Anciano' prepared a "bible" that detailed all the characters' back stories and motivations. This was sufficiently detailed to eliminate the need for endless rehearsals. Instead, each scene was shot on the first improvisation. New content was then added to each subsequent take to keep the scene fresh and original. See more »

Quotes

Jude: Who was that? What was she doing? Well, I might reveal it... and I might not. I have to keep you on the edge of your seats. You see that's the joy of making a cutting edge film. Real life on celluloid. Stay tuned!

Finally something fresh
15 February 2005 | by (Aarhus, Denmark) – See all my reviews

After watching loads of movies lately, this has been a good experience for me. We see an amazing young Jude Law and his crazy he unfold on camera. The basic idea of this film is magnificent, though parts of the ending didn't quiet do it for me. The script was great and the whole "reality"-thing works a lot better here than in crappy TV-series. The story in general is very dramatic and these friends have a lot of skeletons in their closets - more that most people. But they seem "real", non the less, thanks to nice acting. The main theme "Friendship" in portrayed in a new and interesting way, it made me think of a lot of things - definitely a movie worth watching, if you're looking for something non-Hollywood.
