Does the fact that a film is about a misogynist make it a misogynistic film? Thats the question that plagued Voice Over director, Christopher Monger, on the films initial release and which helped hasten its relegation to relative obscurity.Ian McNeice stars as Fats Bannerman, the writer of a radio drama for women set in the 19th Century which has attracted a loyal following, much to everyones amusement.When hes faced with some home truths about his show by a local journalist, before being taunted by two women whom he meets in a bar, Fats career starts to take a new direction. Then he stumbles upon one of the women in an alley, bloodied and bruised, and things go into freefall.Shot on a miniscule budget in less than a month, Voice Over is a rough and ready piece of filmmaking with a terrific central performance from McNeice as a man with a seemingly violent past.
