You will struggle to find a film as inventive, amusing, honest and musical as Meet Pursuit Delange this festival season. Meet Pursuit Delange, a struggling writer hoping to make it as a novelist and journalist. Meet his friends, the ‘cricket and leg obsessed’ Charles Itchy Forrester and the ‘stoned for 20 years and believes he can actually fly’ Jonty Smith. Together these three chums struggle to maintain a living whilst residing in a dilapidated hut at Kew Cricket Club. With anarchic wit, they engage in a series of oddball events involving making a feature film, having affairs, learning to train dogs and auditioning singing policemen as they delay life’s daily grind. The pure delight of Meet Pursuit Delange is how it unashamedly invests in the eccentricities of everyday people and life. Robert Portal gives a knockout performance as the brutally honest, drily-funny Itchy and special mention should go to a fantastic array of feel good, toe-tapping musical numbers. In particular, there is a delightful touch to old Hollywood in a magnificent song and dance sequence in the beautiful Kew Gardens. With its eccentric characters, hilarious script and innate vibrancy, this film is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
