Storyline

Prince Leo, last in the line of rulers of a long-deposed monarchy on continental Europe and jaded with the frenetic search for kicks with the European jet-set, returns to his father's London town house for rest. With him are social-climber Margaret, to whom he is engaged, and Laszlo, who is planning a counter revolution which will restore Leo to the kingship of the monarchy. Leo is shocked to discover the one exclusive neighborhood has degenerated into a ghetto inhabited mainly by poor blacks on the brink of desperation. His nearest neighbors are the Mardi family and their beautiful daughter, Salambo, who catches his eye as does her boy friend the procurer Roscoe. Using the excuse of watching birds he watches them closely through field glasses with the coolness and detachment of a scientist watching insects under a magnifying glass.

this film was made in my street
18 May 2003 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Im writing this in the hope that someone will see it,this film takes me back to my childhood because i remember very well the making of this.We lived in Hurstway street which was in the process of being demolished, and literally all of the houses around us were being bulldozed so the taste of plaster and dry dust was always in the air, but i do digress. In our old street a load of portacabins were set up for the cast and crew and we got to know them,especially billie whitelaw who came to our house to give my brother a spirograph because he was ill. The fireworks wow that was something and the lady singing in the street my mum complained about the noise. We got free electricity from lee electrics because we knew the blokes on the generators,if you can imagine the old streets that you could play in without worry and the bombsites i was so rich as a child and i loved it because we had no material things to speak of. How exciting as a kid to watch a movie being made. chris
