TRISTAM SHANDY:
A Cock and
 Bull Story
A Cock And Bull Story
Plot
Two actors, as their make up is applied, talk about the
      size of their parts. Then into the film: Laurence
   Sterne's unfilmable novel, Tristram Shandy, a fictive
     autobiography wherein the narrator, interrupted
  constantly, takes the entire story to be born. The film
  tracks between "Shandy" and behind the scenes. Size
       matters: parts, egos, shoes, noses. The lead's
  girlfriend, with their infant son, is up from London for
    the night, wanting sex; interruptions are constant.
  Scenes are shot, re-shot, and discarded. The purpose
   of the project is elusive. Fathers and sons; men and
 women; cocks and bulls. Life is amorphous, too full and
          too rich to be captured in one narrative.

Quotes
“Messy and a bit too post-modern and smart-arsed for some I'm
  sure but for me it was just a great deal of fun and a lot of
  laughs” – User quote.
“This is not just a movie-within-a-movie, but a movie-within-a-
  movie-within-a-movie, something that sounds unbearably arch
  but that is swift, funny and surprisingly unpretentious.” – A. O.
  Scott
“The trouble with describing a story this complex and digressive is
  that it's hard to keep it from sounding complicated and hard-
  to-follow. But for a movie about movies, it's surprisingly
  humanistic, cheerful and true to life.” – Carina Chocano
