Movie Info

A pair of desperate criminals attempt to make their way through the countryside in this bleak thriller scripted by Full Monty scribe Simon Beaufoy. Though ex-soldier Heaton (Kenneth Glenaan) seems fairly quick on his feet, that same certainly can't be said for his dimwitted sidekick, Spike (Michael Colgan), who accidentally shoots a farmer's daughter after the duo runs out of gas while driving through the rural landscape. Subsequently hunted by the vengeful Mr. Bellamy (David Bradley) and his bloodthirsty posse, the criminals make one last bid for survival in unfamiliar territory where the home team has a distinct and deadly advantage.

While digital video often is employed by filmmakers to no real aesthetic end beyond its speed, technical simplicity and reduced cost, in "This Is Not a Love Song," British director Bille Eltringham harnesses its creative possibilities, along with a variety of experimental techniques, to bring emotional edge, tension and visual texture to a fugitive thriller that could have been standard genre fare.
