Storyline

The film opens with Jack tied to a chair in a warehouse, guarded by heavies. He seems to have evoked the wrath of the Guv'nor, who lectures him about 'losing respect'. A girl called Natalie is present, and is clearly not in the Guvnor's good books. As one of the heavies removes Jacks gag, the Guvnor points a gun at his head. The scene fades to black, followed by two gunshots. The scene opens in a lively Paris bar, where the Messenger pushes his way through the vibrant crowd and into the dressing room area out back. He walks in on Girl X as she is changing. He is here to deliver a message and some flowers from Garvey, making clear that she is not pleased with Girl X fraternizing with men in the bar. To really make a point, he leaves a packet with her, which she discovers contains a ring and some teeth. Jack awakens in a bathroom in London next to the corpse of the Guvnor. Having been hit around the head, Jack is suffering from amnesia and cannot remember who he is or how he or the body... Written by Paul Tanter

A Brit Noir Sin City
29 August 2008 | by jackadelthSee all my reviews

I too saw this at the LIFF which was great fun to be part of. We too had a film that was being screened there. This film was on just after ours, so i decided to stick around and give it a go - supporting my fellow filmmakers and all that stuff, and I tell you that I wish i hadn't. These guys spent less money then me, but somehow achieved bigger production values and a named cast for the most part. probably to do with a slick story and good production management - these guys were on form and knew how to tell a story. Support them, as I will, when the film hits the shelves - as they're going to be big. I wish you guys all the best here!
