  • Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story Alternative


Semi-adaptation of the eighteenth century novel Tristram Shandy. It endeavours to tell the story of Tristram Shandy's eccentric family yet in parallel it tells the story of the making of this very film, a hectic business with script and budget changes, awkward journalists, arguing producers and rivalry between the bickering main actors.
