Storyline

Their temperaments are quite different and the apprentice days turn wilder and wilder. Written by Moritz Muehlenhoff <jmm@inutil.org>

A riveting performance
7 October 2001 | by (Bristol, UK) – See all my reviews

This short film is pure brilliance.

While its style of jump cuts, close-ups and abrupt, energetic camera movement is jarring, this is a deliberate ploy on behalf of Boyle to unsettle the audience. We are drawn in to the hectic and aggressive lifestyle of the salesmen by the in-your-face action and dialogue. The combination of Boyle's exciting camera-work and Cartwright's intelligent, dark, witty script is, in my mind, perfect. There is an amazing amount of humour interspersed in the poverty, destitution and desperation of the backdrop.

But what really sets this drama apart is the amazing performance of Timothy Spall as the obsessive salesman. Despite playing an unadulterated b**tard, you can still see some humanity in his bullying and ruthless behaviour, and even feel pity at the person he has become. A lesser actor would surely have struggled to show the two sides to his character but Spall is utterly convincing and compelling in his intensity.

And if you like this, be sure to watch the other Boyle/Cartwright collaboration, 'Strumpet'.
