Very dark, very funny - police are looking for a ginger-faced man and an angry woman...
on 11 June 2015
Not for the easily-offended, that's for sure, but if you like a bit of tongue-in-cheek dark humour then this film is for you! It's very surreal, and there are some quite shocking scenes but it is so very, very funny that it's impossible not to like it. And there are some great lines that cracked me up such as "You're not a friend. You're just a relative", "He's not a person, he's a Daily Mail reader", and of course "The police announced today that they're pursuing a ginger-faced man and an angry woman in connection with inquiries".
The wonderful scenery and great soundtrack are a fitting backdrop to a very good film - it's not in the same league as "Hot Fuzz", for example (no cameos from the likes of Cate Blanchett and Peter Jackson, either), but I thought it was thoroughly enjoyable and refreshingly different.
