Gemma Arterton's Disappearance Love

Gemma Arterton's new film 'The Disappearance of Alice Creed' is "up her street".

The British actress admits the thriller - which was filmed entirely on the Isle of Man - is a departure from her previous films such as Bond movie 'Quantum of Solace' and action movie 'Clash of the Titans'.

She said: "This is a very big departure from what I've done recently. And also I think this sort of movie is what I would go and see and spend my money on a DVD and watch it over and over again. This is it for me.

"My favourite director is like Lars Von Trier and it's kind of that ilk. You wouldn't know that from my CV. But I wanted to do something that was really up my street and challenging and that was a brilliant script."

Discussing her co-star Martin Compston, who stars as a kidnapper in the movie, Gemma admits it is his "twinkle" which got him the job.

She told BBC News: "I think what they were looking for, because I was involved in the casting, was someone with a real twinkle in their eye that's also very, very dangerous. He's dangerous and charming and alluring, and you aren't quite sure whether he's good or bad."

'The Disappearance of Alice Creed' is due for release on April 30.
