It‘s also not the titilating study that the title strggests. more a witty and honest look back on the tips and downs of various amorous escapades from a teenager w ho's busy try irrg to change the world. Iidiiiburglr: Cameo.

Btrt the cops are closing in. there are two thugs after the money. and the psychological tension is beginning to show. Iiilled with dark humour and cynical one-liners. this Scottish thriller is bloody and intelligent enough to please the ctrlt audience while remaining accessible enough to be a mainstream hit. lidiirlruigh: Cameo.
