Gripping from start to finish, Boiling Point uses its bold formal approach to support a thrilling tightrope of a tale.

On the busiest night of the year at one of the hottest restaurants in London, charismatic, commanding head chef Andy Jones (the formidable - Stephen Graham) balances along a knife's edge as multiple personal and professional crises threaten to destroy everything he's worked for. A surprise visit from a health and safety inspector sets the staff on edge as the overbooked hotspot begins to fill with guests. Jones alternately berates and cajoles his staff, trying his best to diffuse tensions between management and his crew, while catering to the ridiculous demands of customers.

Filmed in one continuous take, director Philip Barantini serves up an exhilarating drama to behold.
