GALLERY 03: Stella Artois - Devil's Island

The eighth and most expensive Stella ad ever made, this grainy epic blockbuster, directed by Glazer, features a ragged bunch of convicts who create havoc on board a ship set sail for the French colonies. Shot in Buenos Aires and set in the 1930s, this somewhat bleak ad is impressive in terms of its sheer scale and dramatic performance, though it lacks the intelligent humour of its predecessor, 'doctor'.
