Club Le Monde follows an evening out at a seedy nightspot. Plot strands involve a trio of lost transvestites, two girls who never leave the toilets, a pair of innocent under-age drinkers and a guy who is determined to pierce his genitalia, but the central story follows Ali as she sets out to humilate her former lover, Mike, who slept with another woman.Written by
The large numbers of extras required were obtained by having members of production staff hand out fliers to students outside the University of London Union, promising an "exclusive live set" by the film's on-screen DJs, Mr. C, Brandon Block and Alex P. All of the extras are credited by name at the end of the film. See more »
A poster in the ticket booth has a website address clearly visible on it, even though the film is set in 1993. See more »
Blimey! Bit of a shock to see 1993 presented as nostalgia, but Club Le Monde captured the mood back then perfectly. A little rough round the edges maybe, but this only added to the realism of a night at a dingy club. The music was spot-on - can't wait for the soundtrack - after the film we left the cinema literally bouncing and if it hadn't been for work the next day (this is a film for students and the unemployed) we'd have found a club there and then.
I was dragged along by a film-buff who has to see all things British and I was pleasantly surprised that this comedy didn't take the clubbing scene too seriously - seen a few too many of them. It compares favourably with Human Traffic, far more characters to get your head wrapped round and a more lovable bunch.
The characters were horribly realistic too, loved the Essex girls in the loo and the confused bouncer and who doesn't remember the idiot in the sunglasses?
Came away feeling liked I'd had fun!!
