To the mild consternation of Saskia’s socially-conscious mother Alex Raif proposes that, in addition to his duties as best man, he will make a video of events leading up to, and including, the wedding. This means he spends a lot of time with Saskia and begins to realize that, beneath the surface, the happy event may turn out to be less than happy for all concerned. Fortunately a wedding does eventually take place with surprises all round, the biggest one coming from Alex.
Plot: When the rogueish but loveable Raif is asked to be his brother Tim’s best man at his wedding, he decides the best present for the happy newlyweds would be to catch the entire thing on video. He returns home from abroad to find his brother is no longer the bohemian vagabond that he used to be, and is in fact marrying into a very wealthy family, and the wedding they’re about to be part of will be the most outlandish and bizarre that Cheshire has ever seen… Thank the lord Raif has caught it all on tape!

Very nice British romcom, lovely to find when so few show up at the cinemas these days
Raif (Rupert Hound) has returned from being a perpetual vagabond to be the best man at his brother’s wedding. Tim (Robert Webb), the groom, is glad his brother has arrived but is not too sure about the gift Raif proposes. It’s his bro’s dream, you see, to videotape the days up to the wedding fro this sibling as a one-of-a-kind momento. Alas, there is a sticky wicket almost immediately, as Tim tells Raif his intended is Saskia (Lucy Punch). Raif is astonished, as Saskia went to his school and was something of a wild child. But, her mother Alex (Harriet Walter) has married extremely well and has “re-invented” both of their lives. Now, Saskia presents a persona of rationality, staidness, and wealth. As Tim has also risen to become a rich businessman, the two now seem perfect. But, are they? As Raif films the couple from the wedding gala to the wedding dance instruction to visits with the uptight wedding planner, is Saskia truly in love with Tim? Or, is her heart still yearning for someone else? This very nice British romcom has a great cast. Punch, who was a scream in Woody Allen’s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, is quite fine as the reformed free spirit while Webb and Hound are great as the opposite leaning sibs. Walter does a quietly harried turn as the newly rich woman trying to plan a high society wedding and the rest of the cast is great, too. There are a bevy of comic scenes, as the one in which a society bride, whose wedding was to be the season event, ends up riding her party-ship into the ice sculpture. As noted, its Icebergs 2, Titanic 0. Also mirthful is the episode with the snooty Russian choreographer who has been hired to teach the couple a wedding dance or two. Costumes, sets, the lively script, and the zesty direction make for a vastly fun film. Again, Hollywood why have you forgotten women or fans of romantic comedy? Must we now go to Britain to view something we like? It appears so. As I found this in the DVD store, there is a happy ending but I long for romcoms to actually make it back to the theaters across the land.
Enjoyed much more than I expected to
After their parents died, Raif (Rufus Hound) went travelling while more staid Tim (Robert Webb) remained at home and settled into a conventional life. Tim is now about to marry Saskia (Lucy Punch) and Raif has returned to be best man. He also has in mind compiling a fly-on-the-wall video of the events leading up to and including the wedding. That’s the plot. There’s more to it than that, of course – Saskia has a past as a wilful teenager, Tim gets more uptight as time goes on, Saskia’s family as nouveau riche and her mother (Harriet Walter) is set on outdoing all the other nouveaux riches, and so on.
My early thoughts were that this didn’t really belong on the cinema screen. With a cast mostly known for TV work, it had a feel of a long episode from a sitcom. But, as it went on I warmed to it more, and I ended up enjoying it a great deal. In fact, I laughed often and heartily (there is a dance sequence which is laugh out loud funny).
The characters are all likable, which helps (even Robert Webb’s Tim, saddled with an uptight anal-retentive character who folds his dirty washing before putting it in the laundry basket, is essentially a good, likable person). The events stay within the boundaries of credibility, the plot is satisfactory (if somewhat glib towards the end), and there is some excellent acting, particularly from Harriet Walter and Lucy Punch. Lucy Punch has a happy knack of being attractive, sexy, and funny, all at the same time.
The fly on the wall home video motif is well sustained for most of the film but falls to bits towards the end, where a scene in a field has multiple camera angles.
This is a small film, but one which I found much more rewarding than I expected to.
