Long synopsis

Although with a totally different plot, this is a movie in the same genre as Match Point. It is a crime melodrama; the story of two brothers. It is about lust, romance, and the desire for quick money. It’salso about what happens as the web gets more and more tangled, leading, as it did in Match Point, to murder with surprising consequences.

The film takes place in present day London and while the actual tale is far removed from Match Point (the characters and milieu being much more working class and the storyline nothing like it) there are, as in the form of a thriller, a number of unexpected plot twists.
