Bond Street is a visual short story compilation. The stories are connected by a series of objects bought in London's Bond Street for the bride in an upcoming wedding. A dress, string of pearls, veil and bouquet all have a story attached to them. The film is universally well played and tightly directed, with scripts by three separate authors. Nevertheless, the stories merge well to make a pleasing whole. We run the gamut from heavy drama to light British farce, the variety of styles guaranteeing a satisfying experience. Well photographed, on location at times, the titles thanking the "unsuspecting residents of Bond Street" for their contribution.
