Tomorrow Never Comes is a 1978 British-Canadian crime film directed by Peter Collinson and starring Oliver Reed and Susan George.[1]

Production[edit]

The movie was a "tax shelter co-production" between the UK and Canada. The picture was filmed in the province of Québec. The picture is considered to be a Canadian exploitation film - a genre which is known as Canuxploitation.[2]

Plot[edit]

Coming back from an extended business trip, Frank (Stephen McHattie) discovers that his girlfriend Janie (Susan George) is now working at a new resort hotel where the owner has given her a permanent place to stay, as well as other gifts, in exchange for her affections. In the course of fighting over this development, tensions between Frank and Janie escalate out of control until he is holding her hostage in a standoff with the police. As the negotiators (Oliver Reed, Paul Koslo) try to talk Frank into giving himself up, the desperate man feels himself being pushed further and further into a corner.[3]

Awards[edit]

The film was entered into the 11th Moscow International Film Festival.[4]
