Refreshing, intelligent, buy or rent today! No spoilers or useful information of any kind.
I was frankly getting a little bored even of World Cinema until I happened upon this little gem. It's everything Dennis Potter's (r.i.p) Singing Detective could/should have been but wasn't.
As you'll appreciate from that summary, it has acting and singing - but don't let that put you off - PLEASE don't let that put you off. I hate musicals myself but this is FANTASTIC. Witty, wry, sexy - the lot.
If you don't learn anything from this movie, can I stay at your house?
It is a wonderful film. Watch it. Buy it. Steal it if you have to.
