From the PR...
Curiosity develops into voyeuristic fixation as a young writer Bill (Jeremy Theobold) follows strangers around London to research a novel. After following Cobb (Alex Haw), a well-heeled stranger, who is actually a thief, Bill's obsession takes a sinister turn. Drawn into Cobb's world of burglary, prying into the personal lives of victims, he becomes obsessed with an attractive young woman played by Lucy Russell, an aspiring actress making her movie debut. In Cobb, Bill has found a strange companion, part mentor, part confessor and part evil twin.
Discussing the film Nolan commented "The script was written along the lines of what I see as the most interesting aspect of film noir and crime fiction; not baroque lighting set-ups and sinister villains, but simply that character is ultimately defined by action. In a compelling story of this genre we are continually being asked to rethink our assessment of the relationship between the various characters and I decided to structure my story in such a way as to emphasise the audience's incomplete understanding of each new scene as it is first presented".
