Un Rendez Vous

Famed director, Guy Ritchie, helms this stylish noir film featuring some not so subtle product placement and Jude Law.

We’ve seen a lot of fashion films popping up recently, but this one stands above the rest. Jude Law plays the role of a mysterious business man deep in a mysterious phone conversation as his lady friend slowly dresses him. As he drives to his rendezvous point, we learn the playful secret behind the exchange.

What makes this branded film stand out is that it actually attempts to tell an engaging story here. That makes the gratuitous beauty shots and overt product placements all the more palatable. Is it art? I honestly can’t say so. But I don’t think it’s entirely commercial either.

Andrew makes no attempt to hide his love for the magic art of animation. He appreciates compelling visuals but never forgets that in this modern age, a strong story always reigns supreme. You can see his work at or his latest film The Thomas Beale Cipher.
