Ralph Outen (Eddie Izzard) is a hot-shot advertising executive with a taste for the flash and stimulating, and who is not very happy to be turning 40. He is intrigued when he is deliberately not invited to his old school reunion, which prompts him to drop by several of the old friends he had left behind, all of whom are experiencing changes of their own. Three-part drama series (164 mins), first shown on Channel 4 in 2003.Written by
a very pleasant surprise. once u start watching you're hooked. well filmed, good plot. very well acted and superb casting. each episode works as a separate story told from a different perspective. it's more like a thriller or a detective miniseries, but much more entertaining and glamorous. editing is fragmentary which is a bonus. all the separate life stories fit in perfectly together as a beautiful puzzle. quite a of cliché's used but that doesn't flatten the plot. some stunningly beautiful people performs a lot of stunningly beautiful dialogues. an overall thumbs up and more! hope they will do a rerun of it on the BBC. as of august 2005 it is still commercially unavailable.
