A multi-talented ensemble piece, Club Le Monde centres around Ali who's on a boozy night out with her mate Jackie with the sole aim of snogging as many guys as possible in front of her cheating boyfriend Mike.
In the club are also an array of recognizable club characters including glitzy big-busted bimbos Yas and Kelly who can't bring themselves to leave the comfort of the loos and do more lines; Mr Sunglasses, a pilled up geezer friendly to everyone, friend of no-one; three bitchy drag queens who know they've come to the wrong club but just want a pint of lager and Chas and Ra who spend the night considering what part of each other's anatomy to pierce next...
Anyone, who was there will recognise the characters, young single girls up for a laugh, half naked nutters, estranged couples and first timers looking for a thrill.
The music is great and will bring it all back. So grab your mates turn it up loud and Club Le Monde from your very own living room!
"Club le Monde" completes Simon Rumley's trilogy of London-based films, preceded by "Strong Language" & "The Truth Game." The film centres on the events of a single night at the eponymous nightclub in the early 90s. Parallels with "Human Traffic" are obvious and although similar in the culture they portray, they could not be more different.
Whilst one could easily relate to the characters in "Human Traffic," I could not fathom relating to the likes of the wet-behind-the-ears public schoolboys on their virgin foray into London club land; the stereotypically airhead blonde Essex girls who spent most of their evening in the loos (but not exactly sharing a kidney); Mr. Sunglasses , the skinhead weirdo geezer sporting a pair of weirdo geezer sunglasses; a couple of trannies (in some really rather risible scene-stealing moments); the built-like-a-brick-bouncer, Mosh; and the Asian sex machine, to mention but a few. Hardly characters that one can easily relate to, but no less entertaining and credible.
Headed by Frank Harper ('Dog' from "Lock, Stock...") as the Club boss, Club le Monde maintains momentum through the night, with characters effervescently integrating across the expanses of the club, with plenty of hilarious moments (the trannies' response to one guy's spontaneous piercing being one that remains in the mind long after) to keep the enjoyment level on a high (sic).
Ultimately this remains a little seen, yet acclaimed cinematic treat that offers a great throwback to early 90s club culture and should not lose any of its enduring appeal on the small screen.
