    44 Inch Chest is a British gangster film. Colin (Winstone) is in agony, shattered by his wife's (Whalley) infidelity. However, he has friends who do more than stand by -- they kidnap the wife's French lover and hold him prisoner so that Colin can restore his manhood with revenge.

    A kangaroo court takes place and as the situation escalates Loverboy's life hangs in the balance as Colin wrestles with revenge, remorse, grief and self pity, all the while egged on by his motley crew of friends who just want him to get on with it so they can get down the pub.

The stereo plays Harry Nilsson's self-pitying anthem Without You. When it finally ends, Colin immediately presses replay. This is the closest thing to peace that you'll experience for the next 90-odd minutes, because 44 Inch Chest is a film which bristles with elemental machismo. The swearing tops the record previously set by Martin Scorsese's Casino – hardly surprising since the script is by Louis Mellis and David Scinto, the same partnership behind Sexy Beast. Col's marriage to Liz (Joanne Whalley) has spectacularly combusted into a huge domestic fight after she reveals that she has been having an affair with a young French waiter (Melvil Poupaud) and wants out. Col rounds up his four best friends to kidnap the lover. There's the flamboyant gay gambler Meredith (Ian McShane); the clenched fist that is Mal (Stephen Dillane), who has brawn but little brain; Old Man Peanut (John Hurt, with the most dreadful veneers since Mr Ed), a bilious old git who is nostalgic for the good old days; and Archie (Tom Wilkinson), Colin's best friend, who is good to his mum, does a lovely mulligatawny soup and, like the others, is keen to kill the boyfriend and call it a night. 44 Inch Chest was originally intended as a play and, with its spare sets and five-way chitchat, the film hasn'
