du Telecom: Snack attack.

by Andrew MacGregor

du Telecom: “The Man Sitting Next to You” - 85s

A trip to the cinema offers ideal escapism for a couple of hours. Unfortunately, it only takes one crunch, slurp, or waft from a fellow patron to break the illusion. For anyone who’s suffered such picturehouse blues, du Telecom feels your pain.

Rarely has the worst of cinema etiquette looked so good. We see arm hairs mingle, popcorn combust, and nachos literally swimming in melted cheese. As for the bloke breaking wind… well, thank your stars this isn’t Smell-O-Vision.

Directors Ali Ali and Maged Nasser skilfully evoke the feeling of watching a walking concessions stand make a beeline for the seat next to you. Thanks to the advertised network’s two-for-one cinema offer, however, punters can ease such concerns. Well, at least on Tuesdays.
