Andy’s (Stephen Graham – The Irishman, Snatch) day has just begun and he is already behind. As the head chef of a popular London restaurant, he is used to relentless pace, stress and unexpected situations, but it’s Friday before Christmas, their busiest night of the year. The restaurant is double-booked, a sanitary inspector is nosing around the kitchen, and on top of all, Andy’s mentor appears with an acclaimed food critic. Filmed in a single shot, the film draws us into a frenzied evening of a prestigious restaurant and its staff. Actress Vinette Robinson received Jury Special Mention at Karlovy Vary for her performance.
