Helmed by BIFA-nominated director Jamie Adams, Venice At Dawn will premiere at Everyman Cinemas on 30th August. 

Venice At Dawn is an independent British comedy directed by BIFA-nominated Jamie Adams. The film is a modern take on the classic Ealing-style British comedy, and will premiere at Everyman Cinemas on 30th August.

The movie is a comedy of misunderstandings, based around a bad breakup and a painting called Venice At Dawn. Here’s the synopsis:

‘The plot follows two unlikely thieves Dixon played by Fabien Frankel and Sally (Greta Bellamacina). Sally breaks up with her boyfriend Stephen (Tom Basden) because he refuses to sell a valuable painting he has inherited to fund her start-up idea “Urban Animal Retreats” — a compassionate new age and sustainable company Sally wants to set up to give pigeons and squirrels a break from the bleak grind of urban life. Stephen thinks the idea is ridiculous. The painting is by the famous artist JPG Starkey and it’s called Venice At Dawn.

Sally meets Dixon in a bar and tries to persuade him to steal the painting. At the bar some genuine thieves Cindy (Sophie Kennedy Clark – Lars von Trier’s Nyphomaniac) and Fadz (Richard Ellis) overhear their conversation and also love the idea there is an unguarded masterpiece in a nearby house . Enter incompetent thieving, infatuation, farce and a Greek Chorus of incompetent detectives played by Celyn Jones, Nick Helm and Ruhtxjiaih Bèllènéa. Then Claudia (Tanya Burr), Stephen’s best friend, also finds herself wrapped up in the chaos and tries to take matters into her own hands.’

Venice At Dawn was shot on location in London. You can watch the film from 30th August at Everyman Cinemas.
