Club Le Monde follows an evening out at a seedy nightspot. Plot strands involve a trio of lost transvestites, two girls who never leave the toilets, a pair of innocent under-age drinkers and a guy who is determined to pierce his genitalia, but the central story follows Ali as she sets out to humilate her former lover, Mike, who slept with another woman.

The large numbers of extras required were obtained by having members of production staff hand out fliers to students outside the University of London Union, promising an "exclusive live set" by the film's on-screen DJs, Mr. C, Brandon Block and Alex P. All of the extras are credited by name at the end of the film. See more »

A fresh and sharp film, definitely worth watching.
The film Club le Monde is above all, a highly accurate portrayal of the acid house explosion of the early nineties. The explicit reference to drugs are remaining true to the club era at that time, and although may not be to every audience's tastes, brings the clubbing scene to the cinema in its truest and grizzliest form. The multi-layered plot is an engaging format to watch and has found much success in many other independent British films, such as Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and reflects the diversity and uniqueness of the characters in the club.
The music naturally, is an integral part of the movie, and again maintains the ultra-accurate representation of Britain in 1993, with the top clubbing tunes played in the film, by pioneering DJs of acid house such as Brandon Block. The use of pathetic fallacy in the film, with regards to the music is excellent in its subtlety, as well as its effect.
The film's persistent use of coarse language, some may deem unnecessary, as it could detract from the thoroughly humorous dialogue.
