    Hi,
    British film - fairly recent (80s onwards).

    I can only remember a tiny snippet though. Very tough famous gangster is released from prison. He goes, with his wife/girlfriend into a nightclub. The owners of the club are very pleased he is in their club for the kudos it brings them. They welcome him warmly but one of them says something flippant. Although it's very trivial, the gangster ruminates on it all evening, gets more and more wound up and ends up attacking the owners at the end of the evening.

    That's it I'm afraid. I always thought it was Bronson, but having just watched that again this afternoon that's not it.

    Anybody??

    Mona Lisa?
    Ordinary Decent Criminal? - technically that's Irish.
    Sexy Beast?
    Gangster No 1?

    Was Danny Dyer in it?

    It's a no to Mona Lisa, Sexy Beast and Gangster Number One. I don't think I've seen ODC.
    Don't know who was in it, but the more I think about this (and given the comparative lack of responses on this thread) the more I wonder if it was a Sopranos story line that's lodged in my brain.

    Sounds a bit like the actual Charlie Kray, the older bro of the twins. Spent years in gaol, and finally convicted for drug smuggling in 1997.
    Charlie ?
    Gangster No 1?

    I don't think this is it, but maybe - Stormy Monday? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096180/...nm_flmg_act_55
