to good for a quota quickie
25 January 2007 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film is being shown as part of the NFTs Quota Quickie season.However the production seems to have had some money spent on it and is quite stylish so i wonder if it can truly be called a quota quickie.For example there is a musical number early on.It takes place in an art deco room which is reminiscent of Van Nest Polglase.The singer comes into the room from a concealed entrance.The actors are seated around a long table.The singer walks around the room whilst singing with the camera following her around a full 360 degrees till she exits at the concealed entrance.Quite breathtaking.The film is very engaging and is still very topical given that the main character is very similar in many ways to a very famous disgraced politician of our era.The ending has clearly been added on to comply with the requirements of the BBFC.Well worth a view
