Movie Info

In this murder mystery, the protagonist Virgil Guppy gets into a lot of mischief through his lack of foresight. Virgil is a bit of a 'yuppie.' He buys himself a Jaguar to complete the identity he has been trying to build up with a flat, a job, a certain wardrobe and a special girlfriend. The Jaguar is a bit battered, but the mileage is low. The problem is that the dealer and his son are clearly dodgy types. Within four miles, the car dies. What is more, there is a dead body hidden in the trunk. Virgil is arrested for murder; only then does he realize that he has been framed by the dealer, who has long since disappeared. The first feature by Gareth Rhys Jones, the film pokes gentle fun at the value system of the new generation. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovimore
