Nasty Neighbours takes place
on the battlements of every English man's castle - namely his home
- as two semi detached fiefdoms in a small suburban cul de sac go
to war. Ricky Tomlinson plays Mr Peach a failed double glazing salesman
who goes head to head with his loutish new neighbour Mr Chapman,
played with superb menace by Phil Daniels.
Mr Chapman is contemptuous and scornful of Peach's attempts to
draw him into the cosy community of the close and Mr Peach begins
to focus the bitterness of his career failures and mounting debts
on his new neighbours until matters escalate into a bloody finale.
In adapting her smash hit play for the big screen, first time director
Debbie Isitt arrives as a fully formed and unique new voice in British
cinema, one that could well prove to be increasingly important in
years to come. This is jet black comedy with the sort of razor sharp
wit you could slash your wrists on.
