| High-quality independent film that deserves great success
Club Le Monde is a very rare film indeed: a completely independent British film with the quality, charm and good-humour to deserve massive commercial success. Whether it achieves this remains to be seen, but it certainly should.

Set in a seedy nightclub in 1993, the film follows a large ensemble cast as they spend the night drinking, dancing, trying to have sex, taking drugs and piercing parts of their bodies. What could have been a confusing melee of characters - some of whom appear and disappear within a few minutes - is, in fact, an easy-to-follow and downright hilarious story of a bunch of strangers simply having a good time.

Such is the quality of the script that the whole experience of watching Club Le Monde feels much like a night out in a club in its own right. Things start slowly; people come and go; things start to heat up; you start to recognise some of the people around the place; and by the end, the audience is left feeling exhausted, that they've had an exciting, if relatively harmless and meaningless, time.

Simon Rumley has enjoyed enormous critical, if not commercial, success in his films to date. This one leaves his previous work far behind, inasmuch as it is a fully-rounded masterwork from someone who truly seems to understand his peers and the English language.
