Storyline

In London, a young man fancies himself Jean Paul Belmondo. His flat is decorated with movie posters, he mutters in French, smokes cigarettes, dresses as if he's in '60's Paris. His mother calls - to her he's Trevor - and reminds him to pick up his younger sister, Minne. He meets up with her; she's accompanied by Tim, a friend. Trevor takes them to a French film. On the way out, he overhears a couple talking. She likes the film, her date doesn't. In character, Trevor punches out the guy. The young woman runs off and Trevor chases her. Has Trevor as Belmondo already pictured this scene? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

.....and now it's an advert...
29 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I can't write any of the elegant words the guy before me did, however it seem like far too long since I saw this.

It cracked me up when I saw it, and not in the laugh at it because I got the references/jokes etc (a la arty types watching foreign/indy films).

It's such a shame that it's now an advert, this should be showcased somewhere!
