WW II love story ... as a london state of mind
21 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I live in grosvenor square is an all star british production with Anna Neagle and Rex Harrison; Neagle at the time the biggest box office star in England and much of the rest of the world excluding the US. It is very British in style i.e. to say Merchant-Ivory, English Patient etc. The movie takes its time but it is worth it. The tragic battle for the heart of Neagle by the US officer, Dean Jagger and the British officer Harrison is tragic or is it?. The movie seems to be serving the higher purpose of post-war rekindling of Anglo-American relations and as a source of gratitude to the Americans by the British for saving the free world. Either way, performances are all around good with Neagle being the stand-out. The scene as a stenographer, while a list of dead officers' names are read is especially noteworthy. There's really not much more to add. I could detail every scene of the movie and it still wouldn't change a thing, to you, when you see it; because it's all atmosphere, directing and the acting. It's very subtlely done and in my book that is always a plus. So, if you like those merchant-ivory movies, you might not love this one but you will definitely laud it.
