Gentlemen's Relish (2001) Poster

A painter in London paints in a style no longer popular. His assistant suggests artistic photography. It blooms. So much more when he photographs settings from classical nude paintings - naively oblivious to the real reason to success.

| an excellent comedy drama
Gentlemen's Relish is an excellent comedy drama set in Edwardian times.It was first broadcast on British television on New Year's Day 2001. At the beginning of the story we are introduced to artist Kingdom Swann(Billy Connolly)who decides to take up photography when his style of painting goes out of fashion.He is persuaded by his assistant Cromwell Marsh(Douglas Henshall) to take photographs of tasteful nude tableaux.The story develops from there.

There are some terrific one liners and very funny situations and the story does explore the question of morality.Billy Connolly is very convincing as the innocent Swann and Douglas Henshall gives a brilliant comedy performance as the cockney rogue Marsh.

The film is 90 minutes long and although it went straight to television ,it was good enough for a cinema release.
