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 »

The entertaining independent British comedy depicts the interactions of a variety of characters in a typical nightclub. Much of the script and many of the performances are hilarious - notably the off-his-face raver Mr Sunglasses, and the charmingly innocent public schoolboy Anthony (for whom this new-found world of sex, drugs and alcohol is a fascinating revelation).
On the minus side, the film lacks polish. No doubt due to the low budget, the lack of variety of location and the limited photography give it a static feel. Though there is progression of storyline in individual threads, the film comes across somewhat as a series of sketches rather than a coherent whole - reminiscent in this respect of the Comic Strip TV films of the 1980's.
Overall though it makes for an entertaining enough evening, particularly for a British audience (I'm not sure how many of the characters and jokes would travel).
