Laurence Sterne's 18th-century novel The Life And Opinions Of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman is a classic 'unfilmable' novel, 600-plus pages of in-jokes, not getting to the point and very little plot. Director Michael Winterbottom's semi-adaptation adds more layers by showing a crew struggling to make a movie of the book, so that Steve Coogan plays Tristram, Tristram's father and 'Steve Coogan'. That may sound confusing, but it's actually a very funny film that also serves as a useful introduction to one of the great works of English literature.
Bizarre but brilliant existential tale of a hypochondriac playwright whose art begins to imitate life on a very grand scale indeed.
