In late 1950s New York, Tom Ripley, a young underachiever, is sent to Italy to retrieve Dickie Greenleaf, a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy. But when the errand fails, Ripley takes extreme measures.
Two ex-government agents turned rival industrial spies have to be at the top of their game when one of their companies prepares to launch a major product. However, they distract each other in more ways than one.
Smart-but-ineffectual journalist Dan "We use euphemisms!" cannot decide between his girlfriend, loving-but-clingy waitress Alice, or his lover cold-but-intellectual photographer Anna; herself indecisive between Dan and honest-but-thuggish "You're bloody gorgeous!" doctor Larry. The film puts the four leading characters in a box and strips them apart.Written by
When Alice and Dan sit on the 109 bus, the destination is for Westminster Station. However, the bus travels east along Victoria Embankment past Blackfriars - the opposite direction to Westminster. See more »
My pet monkey has more insight into relationships!
I've had the displeasure of watching some truly awful pretentious ego trips in my time but this film takes the soggy biscuit! This is soooooooooo bad. Please, if you value life and the short time you have on this earth, go and take your gran out and feed some birds or something rather than sit in a darkened room watching this utter drivel. If you watch this film and actually believe it has something meaningful to say about the relationship between men and woman then, please, end yourself now, there is no hope for you. The script had to be written by an adolescently who has just discovered his body and thinks that being "adult" is talking about sex pretty much all the time...boring! Four unrealistic characters, with unrealistic motivational traits and unrealistic dialogue. Only people who like being told what it's cool to like will like this. Everyone else with their own mind will see this for what it is, a student film! Terrible!
