A Cock And Bull Story

I'm a grown man, talking to the camera, in a womb.

    A Cock And Bull Story Synopsis

    One of English literature's most anarchic classics - The Life And Opinions Of Tristram Shandy - adapted by one of cinema's most daring film-makers, A COCK AND BULL STORY is a comedy from acclaimed director, Michael Winterbottom.

    Bringing together the cream of British comedy talent, this is a film which perfectly captures the spirit of the novel - a celebration of the wonderful, unfathomable chaos of life itself.

    A COCK AND BULL STORY is an energetic, laugh out loud adaptation of a book which is unadaptable, and this is wrapped round by an affectionate and equally hilarious account of what it's like trying to make a film - especially when the two lead actors are constantly vying with each other for attention.
