First-time director Venville has tempted an all-star male cast – John Hurt, Tom Wilkinson and Ray Winstone among them – to enact a script from the writing team who wrote Sexy Beast. Will the adulterous Frenchman get his just desserts from cuckolded Winstone, whose friends cheer the avenger on? A fine ensemble performance of a claustrophobic, sometimes theatrical drama, leads to a surreal climax.
