Review
The 'story' is structured round three journeys undertaken by the Narrator and his friend Robinson to research the source of English Romanticism. As the pair attempt to get a grip on the city's history, contemporary events distract them from their planned route and their focus on the past. A scathing commentary on the effects of more than a decade of Conservatism, the film touches on figures as diverse as Baudelaire, John Major and the Chippendales and is one of the most original British features in a long time. Set and shot throughout 1992, this film constructs a feel for the city and buildings and an understanding of late Twentieth Century urban decline in Britain.
