Storyline

Eight haunted people meet and fall apart - looking for redemption in each other. Jim is throwing watermelons off his office roof. He's testing the effect for a possible suicide. But then there is Sue on an adjacent roof about to jump herself. They meet, delay their departure and set off searching for other ways out than down. Sue's ex-boyfriend, Dean, is struggling with his creativity. His paintings are getting panned and his poetry ripped apart. He needs a muse - and who better than Gina, the experimental prostitute with dodgy legs who lives next door. However, Dean soon finds out that Gina never does anything for free. After a short fling with Dean, Olly is lost in a world of sexual confusion when forced to look after his deaf-mute brother Chris for the day. Olly discovers that not only does Chris has gay feelings too, but is more comfortable with them than he is. They embark on a searing quest through Soho's gay community to help Chris loose his virginity. But no-one has more to ... Written by Anonymous

Unbelievably pointless, dull and somewhat disturbing
6 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to bore you with any old tattered rubbish like this film did for me.

I have the absolute utmost respect for Dire and Hassan, but this film did not suit the great roles that they usually play.

I too thought that film would have been good because of the impressive cast line up, WRONG, WRONG!, WRONG!! It was the most appalling piece of film work I had seen in all my life. To be fair some of the acting was good. However the degree of acting was greatly minimized by how terrible the storyline was. The two suicidals in the film made it depressing. The Prostitute with the Extremely Weird clients made it disturbing and the freak who wanted to love her had also added to the strangeness. Every single aspect of this film's story line had no point to it what so ever. It was Awful.

I can't stress enough how Bad, Boring and bewilderingly pointless this film is.

DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM!!!!! It's a complete waste of time
