Introduced by producers David Kelly and Martin Bruce-Clayton, and location manager Andy Pavord.

Aki Kaurismäki’s ‘Ealing comedy on downers’ follows a discarded civil servant who, having unexpectedly fallen in love, seeks refuge from a hit man he no longer requires.

Shunning ‘landmark London’, Kaurismäki opts for evocative but off-beat East End locations, many apparently suggested by his friend, British ex-punk Nicky Tesco of The Members (who, along with Joe Strummer, has a cameo in the film).
