    ‘Little gem of the week’ METRO

    ‘Highly promising feature debut… a comedy of menace in a Pinteresque vein’ THE OBSERVER

    FILM FOUR

    ‘Beguiling thriller which draws its considerably grisly strength from a first class script by Tim Whitnall’ SKY MOVIES REVIEW

    ‘Nifty, Beckettian two-hander from promising British first-time director… savvy, well-researched script from Tim Whitnall… makes for one hell of a Hollywood calling card’ TIME OUT

    ‘An intriguing drama… Moody, minimalist and well-observed, this is a quirky low-budget triumph’ DAILY EXPRESS

    ‘Whitnall has a good ear for the uneasy bravado… of British men obliged to pass the time together… Superb underplaying by the two actors’
    THE INDEPENDENT

    ‘Cleverly written and directed... a tight, atmospheric and claustrophobic low budget British thriller’
