Storyline

In Glasgow, Toni Cocozza, age 28, aspires to be a lounge singer; his repertoire is strictly Sinatra, backed by Bill, an aging piano player and his only friend. Toni dreams big and enters a local television talent show. About that time, a local Mob boss decides Toni is great entertainment and invites him to be his guest at a casino. Toni chats up Irene, a cigarette girl, he gets an odd job or two from Chisolm, the mobster's number two, the audition goes bust, and Toni's future is uncertain. One thing leads to another with the Mob. Is Toni at a crossroads, or is there in reality no turning or going back? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

fantastic film
2 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't miss this film. I came across it by accident and I was hooked after 2 minutes. I love this movie. Brian Cox is, as always, perfect. What a range he's got! Ian Hart as Toni is so believable you don't even think he's acting. Alun Armstrong plays the perfect heart of gold cum voice of conscience. Tommy Flannagan manages to be vicious and evil but somehow sexy at the same time. Must be that "bad boy" thing. I was fascinated by the Scotland portrayed here. I think of Scotland as lovely hairy men in kilts. Truth to tell, there was not one kilt to be seen here. This is the real urban Scotland (Edinburgh?) and nothing like what I pictured. The script is flawless. The ending...I won't spoil it for you. Oh, and Kelly MacDonald performs beautifully and believably. You won't be disappointed with this one. I gave it a 10!
