Storyline

Socially-challenged hitman Charles lives in Cannes and wants to retire with a yacht and a woman in tow. He has no experience with either until he lets his cleaning lady (delectable Essex-girl Lisa) into his life, but he doesn't bank on her vile boyfriend Denny or con-artists Simon and Ray stealing a two million quid nest egg from the boot of his car. Charles hunts them down across the Cote d'Azur whilst pursued by his rival Clancy who is incensed by the fact that Charles might actually be retiring. Written by Jack Hillgate

Excellent
24 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of watching this film recently and it's a gem. A low budget British comedy-thriller that belies the production budget with flair from everybody concerned. Filmed virtually all in black and white, the camera work is excellent (particularly of the locations) matched by the acting which actually does make you give a damn about the characters. there are one or two snippets of wooden delivery by one character in particular, but it actually enhances that character's seeming inability to relate to 'ordinary people' in a social setting.

I have given it maximum rating because productions like this truly not only deserve it...but need it, lest they remain criminally overlooked.
