The film itself has optional Czech sound & subtitles on/off. ORIGINAL ENGLISH SOUNDTRACK - GUARANTEED > > > > > A famous movie actor (Peter O'Toole) claims that he has written a book. As result the real (not very well-known) author (Colin Firth) vengefully kills him but then himself dies following an accident. Together, they both find themselves in a strange after-life, where the souls of all famous people are gathered together... What a strange yet compelling little film this is. Made in 1990, it only got a TV release in the UK and has now largely been forgotten. However, it is a film that deserves a mini-revival. As the synopsis above states, the film is about two deceased people, one famous in his lifetime as a celebrated actor, the other famous for killing the said actor. They arrive at a strange timeless hotel aboard a boat in which only famous people reside. The more famous you are the better your room is, which means people are continually moving up and down the pecking order based on the whims of the living. Whilst the film deals cleverly with the fleeting nature of fame - an even more relevant subject in this day and age - it is the world that is created which is the most fascinating element. The set up could almost be from a giallo (there's a hint of Bazzoni's "Footprints" in the locale), but the lighter tone and British sensibility at times turns it into a farce (a very enjoyable one). The way the most coveted types of fame in our society are shown to be so superficial in the grand scheme of things makes for thought provoking yet enjoyable viewing...
