- (Spoliers!) “A Customer from Lincoln” gave a 5 star review to The Baker starring Damian Lewis on the Sofa Cinema site saying:
This is not a rom com, not a black comedy and certainly not a thriller. It’s an out and out quirky British comedy. Hitman (Damian Lewis) tires of his life and seeks to get away from it all in a small Welsh village where, in an attempt to blend in, he becomes a baker. Unfortunately for him, local village half-wit, with a passion for blowing up sheep using home-made fertiliser bombs, stumbles upon Lewis’ real ‘identity’. This soon becomes known amongst the predominantly male occupants of the village who, thinking he is merely undercover, seek his services to rid themselves of overbearing wives and annoying neighbours – well you would wouldn’t you! Lewis has an encounter early on with local vet (Kate Ashfield) which adds a bit of romance to proceedings – including passion frenzy involving a variety of cake making ingredients – beats whipping up a Victoria sponge! This film has no pretensions about setting itself in any genre – it’s just 90 mins of easy to watch, fun.
This hilarious film is currently available for purchase on region 2 DVD.
