A botched card game in London triggers four friends, thugs, weed-growers, hard gangsters, loan sharks and debt collectors to collide with each other in a series of unexpected events, all for the sake of weed, cash and two antique shotguns.
A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.
Manu and Nadine lose their last tenuous relationship with main-stream society when Manu gets raped and Nadine sees her only friend being shot. After a chance encounter, they embark on an explosive journey of sex and murder. Perhaps as a revenge against men, perhaps as a revolt against bourgeois society, but certainly in a negation - almost joyful in its senseless violence - of all the codes of a society which has excluded, raped and humiliated them. Controversial for its violence and real sex scenes: a vividly nihilist road movie set in France. Written by

In Canada, the Ontario Film Review Board originally banned the film because it was too pornographic. The film was re-submitted under a pornographic license, and banned because it was too violent. By then it had been selected for the Toronto Film Festival, and was approved in British Columbia and Québec. On March 8, 2001, the Ontario Film Review Board approved the film, with an R rating.

La frère de Manu:
Where did you get those bruises from?
They're from fucking dickheads like you! They always have to hit someone in order to feel alive.

a piece of talking doo doo would be more entertaining
well...well..well lets just say that Iwill never have that hour or so of my life back! but... so there was this one part that really blew..ooo wait..wait..that was the whole movie. this is just a guess but I think this was some wealthy..upper class..rich..poor attempt at well..what were they trying to attempt.. ruin a perfectly healthy plot with actors that carried the weight of a dying pig fetus. lets just say the one positive thing I got from this film was the confidence to make film. If your an aspiring film maker and you think your work will never get played..Guess again. anything held next to this tragic attempt would look like gold among rusting copper!
My spelling has taken a turn for the worse after watching this movie. I think this film is the one thing in my life that isn't an illegal substance that has caused me significant brain damage. You know how after passing a car wreck you don't turn away even though you know you should? This is the one time that you should actually turn away. A period in a sink? A gun up an anus? Good lord. Every word out of the actresses mouths was a curse word. No subtlety in the dialogue whatsoever! These actresses had all the emotional range of porno actresses, and their sex scenes were the least arousing I have ever experienced. My penis not only remained limp, it grew downward. The fact that someone actually financed this heaping pile of bloody vomit, and that Time Magazine listed it as one of its top ten European movies of 2000, my God. I am rendered speechless. Someone please kill the Time Magazine film critic. Screw Flanders, Screw Flanders, Screw Flanders.
