The Legend of Barney Thomson

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Barney Thomson, an awkward, diffident, Glasgow barber, lives a life of desperate mediocrity. His uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he accidentally enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer.
Barney's mother Cemolina isn't much help either, she has a dark secret of her own to keep hidden. And what about police inspector Holdall who's started to sniff around the case?
Edinburgh International Film Festival 2015 - World premiere
