Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story (2005)
Directed by Michael Winterbottom.
Starring Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon, supported by an amazing crew including Gillian Anderson and Stephen Fry.
I really enjoyed this film, where post modernism meets surrealism and a novel adaptation turns into a documentary. Afterwards, I was told it was the second time, although I remembered absolutely nothing, not a single scene! How could I have forgotten a name such as Tristram-short-for-Trismegistus? Or Coogan’s unique ability to turn everything about himself and still be more delightful that annoying?
