- This Brit flick is set on the London underground. 9 different short stories, all different. Some real gems in here, also some big name Directors contributed, Jude Law, Bob Hoskins and Ewan Mcgregor have a go, and some cameo performances from big time actors like Ray Winstone and Daniela Nardini. A real underated but solid film.
