SET THE THAMES ON FIRE

In a near-fu­ture Lon­don, the Thames is eat­ing into the de­cay­ing city as pi­anist Art and friend Sal wan­der its streets, dream­ing of a life in sunny Egypt.

There’s not much more plot to spoil in di­rec­tor Ben Charles Ed­wards’s deca­dent, Gil­liamin­flu­enced, With­nail & I-riff­ing fairy­tale. While easy on the eye (the pro­duc­tion de­sign and cin­e­matog­ra­phy have a sleazy rich­ness to them), there’s a fa­tal lack of story.

Ex­tras Bloop­ers; five deleted scenes; trailer. Steve O’Brien

Warn­ing: con­tains Noel Field­ing.
