Ben Barnes, co-star Andrei Chadov and director Suzie Halewood at the Charity Premiere screening of the film "Bigga Than Ben" at the Odeon Covent Garden in London.
Based on Bol’she Ben, the controversial, best-selling diaries of Pavel Tetersky & Sergei Sakin, Bigga than Ben follows the wild exploits of two freewheeling Russians, Spiker and Cobakka. Dodging the military draft, they decide to take their chances in Britain, embarking on a headlong charge through the seedy underworld of the multi-cultural melting pot that is London. Shoplifting, bank fraud, cooking heroin and smoking crack are all amongst the specialist subjects, as this priceless, barbed satire delivers a comprehensive guide to screwing the system. However, as their rollercoaster ride through the electric highs of the low life starts to slow down, things start to fall apart for our unlikely heroes.
