Description

When his billionaire boss Demi (Harvey Keitel) dies, chauffeur Donald (Gabriel Byrne) is given one final job - to wipe out any evidence of Demi's relationship with his mistress, the enigmatic and beautiful Amber (Sibylla Deen). Donald's task soon unravels when Amber's life is threatened, and he finds himself her reluctant protector. Unwittingly drawn into a dangerous urban underworld, he encounters dark, harrowing practices, and a sinister criminal figure who will test him to his very limits.

  • Truly appalling

    I watched this film with high hopes. Sadly, it failed on absolutely all levels. Truly appalling script, direction and acting. I have absolutely no idea how films like this get made. Avoid at all costs. Please

    Watching this feels like entering another world! It’s focused on a very specific area of Bradford, and the authenticity is mind blowing. You can tell there’s a lot taken from real happenings in there. Solid acting from a varied ensemble cast! Well worth a watch, as an insight into a different type of Yorkshire. And trust me, this is very true to life!

    My partner is from Bradford and so he chose this as our Saturday film. I was hooked within 5 minutes and the end.... well - just watch it! This isn't sugar coated, it's a sad reflection of society that my partner said he saw only too regularly. It was beautifully filmed and Sibylla Deen (who I've never seen before) was fantastic. If Jack hadn't been from Bradford, I would never have seen this... highly recommended.

    A very confused and disappointing film with some bizarre scenes (nightclub especially) and very strange music score as if imported from the 1970s. Read reviews elsewhere before watching.

    Dreadful, quite what kind of portrayal of Yorkshire this is supposed to be I don't know, but as a Londoner I would be tempted never to travel north again. Great acting (limited to the main cast), ruined by a terrible script with some scenes which appeared to be choreographed for WWE wrestling. Still not sure what happened in the nightclub scene at the start... utter codswallop!
  • A risky purchase....

    .... One of those, it was in the charts on a whim purchases and it paid off. Thumbs up!

    A mild mannered Byrne gets pushed just that bit too far defending a lady trapped by cultural practices that soon ensnare them both into a dangerous underworld where Byrne has to start making the toughest choices of all to survive. Great build up.

    Great gritty British thriller in a part of the world not seen on screen as much as it needs to be!
