British film-maker Guy Ritchie has laughed off suggestions his new movie Revolver makes reference to the Kabbalah.

The rumours started after Ritchie become devoted to the mystical offshoot of Judaism since marrying pop superstar Madonna, who has practiced the faith since 1997.

However, despite wanting to do an investigative documentary on the ancient doctrine, Ritchie says, "There aren't any Kabbalah references. At one stage somebody called it a Kabbalah script, which was a mystery to me."
