Description

Nobody knows where love and colonic irrigation goes.

Terence Gross' bizarre and satiric dark comedy follows the peculiar travails of chef Kath (Toni Collette) and her former lover Ronald (Daniel Craig). He's been running decaying resort and spa, the Hotel Splendide, just the way his parents did years before. Bad food and regular enemas are included in the price. After five years away, Kath returns to work with Ronald, with unexpected results.

Strange, beguiling and scatological, Hotel Splendide is a singular journey into the gothic and eccentric. An exceptional international cast includes veteran actor Peter Vaughan, the late Katrin Cartlidge and Stephen Tompkinson.
