Trivia

The BBFC originally requested the complete removal of Josie's single use of 'fucking' for the film's cinema release. A compromise was reached between the censors and Michael Winner, and instead the word was partly obscured by the sound of a car horn. See more »

Flawed nostalgia piece
3 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pretty poor film in terms of plot and structure but interesting as a glimpse of a long gone London and for some lovely footage of Cambridge.

Also worth casting your eye over the cast, Welles looking bloated and unwell, Reed's striking looks somewhat dented by the facial scarring as a result of a 1963 bar fight and Carol White youthful and beautiful before her succumbing in following years to substance addiction. Michael Winner makes one his final Brit films before moving to Hollywood and it's certainly no classic, kind of a 'Garden State' of its day - episodic but contrived and laboured.

However, England looks good and the 60s do look pretty swinging.
