Movie Info

Joseph Fiennes and Rhys Ifans star in this wacky British comedy-thriller. Hard luck case Pete (Ifans), who is unable to impregnate his hot-to-trot wife Sarah (Sadie Frost), learns that his father's business, which he recently inherited, is saddled with a huge tax debt. At his wits' end, he consults his coke-snorting buddy Sean (Fiennes), who recommends a monetary infusion from local Russian loan shark Mr. Kant (Steven Berkoff) and his over-sexed daughter Masha (Tara Fitzgerald). When Pete and the mobster meet, Masha starts aggressively seducing him. Meanwhile, Sean double-crosses everyone while Sarah just whines. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Rancid Aluminum

Audience Reviews for Rancid Aluminum


There's something quite Shakespearean about this enjoyable tale of dodgy international double dealing, sinister plotters, power and biological succession. Played for laughs and generally played very well by an excellent cast of mainly Brits. Oh, and in case we need more evidence that it's a Brit flick, they've even spelt the title right.
