the man who would be queen
7 October 2007 | by paulinemeSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Raindance Film Festival last Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The story is about Hugo's birthday party in his countryside home with wife (Anna) and friends (Steve and Wendy). Problem is he planned a quiet weekend but an uninvited friend turns up and we are then embarked on a roller-coaster of crazy events...the film is quirky, hilarious at times and you are totally absorbed by the various plots, time just flies by. An excellent cast with the 5 main characters very convincing, I liked the close-ups on people's faces/eyes and the photography and music. Colourful and different, a good all round movie reminding me of movies like Abigail's Party and Festen.
