Writer-director Neil Jordan's breakthrough film is a brilliant, noir-infused love story.Mona Lisa is set in the seedy streets of Soho, where vice lords run sordid clubs in which young, bewildered women sell themselves to earn money for drugs. Bob Hoskins plays George, a small time loser employed by underworld kingpin Mortwell (Michael Caine) as a chauffeur to an enigmatic, high class call girl (Cathy Tyson). His fascination with her leads him on a dangerous quest through the sordid underbelly of London, where love is a weakness to be exploited.Hoskins' Oscar nominated role heads this trio of powerhouse performances, and Neil Jordan's acclaimed screenplay introduces themes he would later explore in The Crying Game. Mona Lisa is an enigmatic and unforgettable work of art.
