This was a little interesting piece that came my way. Something I hadn’t heard of, or seen before, yet boasts a powerful cast: Michael Gambon, Helen Mirren, Tim Roth.

Kind of slow moving, but it kept my attention for the most part. It’s about a guy who owns a restaurant who just likes to talk. Well, partly. His wife starts to have an affair with someone who keeps coming to the restaurant. Eventually things turn sour, like is usual.

The photography was very subtle in its genius (watch the reds). With great shooting, great cast, overall it is a very good movie. It’s good decent reviews on IMDB as well, problem is it’s very unknown :( The ending rocks too!

Buy it on Amazon (there are a lot more buying options on Amazon, but this seemed the best)
