A novelist's life ricochets from 1920s Paris to '50s New York and '80s London. Along the way he meets Ernest Hemingway, Ian Fleming and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor - the exiled British king and his mistress Wallis Simpson.
Emulsion is a Psychological Noir about a man looking for his missing wife, set on the south coast of England. When ISABELLA mysteriously disappears from a car park her husband, RONNY, becomes obsessed with finding her. In an attempt to stay close to her he even takes a job at the very same car park. It becomes his life. We join the story a year after the key events. Ronny lives alone in a dirty old apartment. He watches the same film on a projector every night. This is a nostalgic reel of 16mm film; memories of Isabella. Every morning, Ronny packs his bags to move on with his life, but he always slams on the brakes as he approaches a picturesque bridge on the edge of town, where he had proposed to Isabella. Everyday he returns to the car park to continue his quest. Each night Ronny stands in the very spot Isabella went missing from and tries to retrace his own movements and recap on any clues. One night, a prostitute is attacked in the car park and bundled into the boot of a car. ...Written by

The film is edited wonderfully so that the plot gradually develops keeping the audience guessing about the circumstances of Isabella's disappearance and Ronny's frame of mind. There are a couple scenes which play out of sequence or are repeated as an extended scene which add to the richness of the story telling.
The fact that Ronny is a bit 'lost' in his own world, looks like he has traveled from the 1940/50s and has a strict routine including spending most of his time in an eerily empty concrete car park, adds to the mystery and makes for an intriguing character
The brilliantly acted characters will keep you guessing and interested, the beautifully shot scenes will keep you engaged.
This is British independent film at its best! Don't go expecting a fast paced action thriller, but go and immerse yourself in the world of Emulsion and enjoy the beauty of it.
Looking forward to seeing what Suki Singh comes up with next.
