Fabulous
14 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yes, well i saw this film whilst visiting Australia and came across a film festival called Queer-space. This was a featured film there. I was very pleasantly surprised the talent was more professional than that of which you would expect from Northern Ireland. The main role 'Paul' played by Nathan Hughes was executed with a subtle genius. A very captivating performance given that it was a short film. The idea of a prison Opera took away from the typical nature of the genre i.e. being labelled as a Gay movie. Wonderful cast all round really, deeply moving piece of modern film, verging on Art.

I would be very surprised if i didn't see Mr Hughes on the big screen soon in a feature. #P.s Check out the Linnet (2006) Notasuch films for similar Fantastic performance(s)
