Ever wished you had someone to show your knickers to? Lonely heart Muriel does in Fast Spin Fling, a romantic comedy about a young woman who takes pity on her housemate's boyfriend and begins to secretly fancy him. Featuring a refreshing style of computer drawn animation, an up-tempo soundtrack and inventive storytelling, the film spins a lively tale of dirty washing, crosswords and frumpy underpants.
