A film with no spoken dialogue, just follows the music and lyrics of Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem, which include WWI soldier poet Wilfred Owen's poems reflecting the war's horrors. It shows the story of an Englishman soldier (Wilfred Owen) and a nurse (his bride) during World War I.
Four career cons just committed the crime of the century. But when a double-cross leaves their loot in limbo, it’s up to one American temptress (Jamie Lee Curtis) to convince one English lawyer (John Cleese) to reveal its location. Monty Python veteran John Cleese co-wrote and co-stars in this hilarious tale of lust, sex, murder and seafood, which won an Academy Award for Kevin Kline for his performance as an unhinged hitman. Also starring Python veteran Michael Palin, A Fish Called Wanda is “a deliciously dishy comedy” (Washington Post).
Four conniving jewel thieves...three Yorkshire terriers...two heaving bosoms and one proper British barrister.
