Words dont say it all
18 February 2002 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

The Car Man was brilliant. It used the music from the classic opera Carmen, which worked well in the modern setting of this drama. It conveyed the story through movement rather than words, which I thought was extremely well done and comprehendible. The story is about a guy who comes to town and quickly becomes the object of a lot of attention. He's a heartthrob to the ladies and a hero to the men. He gets involved with someone's wife and a young gay man. When the husband is killed by his wife the gay man is framed and goes to prison, where he gets raped etc. However the wife and main guy run off together and, due to his relationship with the gay guy, guilt sets in and he goes a bit crazy. This was really good if you like the theatre and stuff like that.
