(‘arlyle. Jonny Lee Miller. 93 iiiins. John llodge's screenplay perfectly captures the desperate humour of Irvine Welsh‘s novel. keeping the episodic structure ofjunkie scenes for the first half. before concentrating more on Renton in London in the later stages. Fast and stylish direction. creative soundtrack and acting that's off-the-i'ails excellent. General release.
I Trop Belle Pour Toi! ( l8) (Berri-and Bliei‘. I'l'illlCC. I989) Gerard Depardieu. Josiane Balasko. (‘arole Bouquet. 9| mins. Massive I:lCl)L‘Il hit offers a characteristic twist on the old eternal threesome scenario. Depai‘dieu plays the succesful owner of a car showroom. envied by all for his beautiful wife (Bouquet). who falls in love with his dumpy secretary (Balasko). :\ film of commendable openness. its true achievement is how it turns the stuff of farce into an intense hybrid of wistful comedy and romantic passion. lidinburgh: (‘arneo.

past to discover the source of a lethal virus that has devastated humanity. but even he begins to wonder if the images in his head are merely delusions. :\ complex time-travel fantasy. with liberal subplots and a decent mystery edge. that's lifted by Gilliam's ever-brilliant visual skills. It may at times stumble over its own inner logic. but it's an odd. eccentric creation that engages the imagination. lidinbuigh: liilirihotise.
