I'd never even heard of this movie. A friend of mine got the DVD in Australia - though the film is definitely Brit. Story is about this hotel on an island somewhere. Not sure if it actually exists or not. Has this totally Gothic weird feel, and it looks real - not like digital effects.

It's about a kind of war between two cooks who end up falling in love with each other, but also about this bunch of incredibly (psychologically)damaged people who have all come here to get better and are really getting worse and worse. It feels like a real place but also completely other worldly. I watched it twice and can't stop thinking about it. The best part of this movie isn't so much what happens - though I really liked the story - it's the feeling it gives you. It just isn't like anything else I've ever seen.

Closest movie that it reminds me of is Harold and Maude - though this is a lot more extreme. I think the main character is the new James Bond!
