One of English literature's most anarchic classics - The Life And Opinions Of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman - 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 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.
