Thomas Hardiman / GB, 2022 / 101 min.
The participants in a hairdressing competition enter into a cut-throat competition to the death – literally, when one of them is found dead. The feature debut by young British director Thomas Hardiman is a hilarious satire both on the world of fashion and the murder mystery.
Models, hairdressers, jury members: they all circle one another during a regional hairdressing competition, outdoing each other in low blows, blind ambition and envy. The hairstylists, liberated from the need to cut everyday hair in everyday styles, really go to town with the most extravagant hairstyles imaginable, making the term ‘hair art’ an understatement.
