THE BUSINESS, directed by THE FOOTBALL FACTORY'S Nick Love is a story of passion, crime and friendships tested to the limit.
Set in the Thatcher era with the cool sounds of the Eighties, THE BUSINESS is an action packed gangster flick set in Spain's sun drenched Costa del crime.
Frankie (Danny Dyer) is on the run from the high-rise's of South London to a new life in Malaga with nothing but a tin stuffed full of cash. Having no idea that this delivery of cash to super-suave playboy and ex-con, Charlie (Tamer Hassan), will change his life forever, he soon becomes one of the gang, and finds himself drawn into a flamboyant and violent world of organised crime.
Things can get tough when you attract the wrong sort of attention, especially when that happens to be Sammy's (Geoff Bell) girl Carly (Georgina Chapman), coupled with the attention of The Mayor of Puerto Banus, the Colombian mafia and the Spanish Coastal Guards.
Frankie's about to find out that the Spanish coast of dreams can quickly turn sour as loyalties shift, business gets out of control and friendships are tested to breaking point.
Produced by Vertigo Films' Allan Niblo and James Richardson (THE FOOTBALL FACTORY, ITS ALL GONE PETE TONG)
The soundtrack featuring Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Duran Duran will be released by EMI in September 2005
