Pretty interesting - worth seeing for Townshend fans
22 February 2003 | by (Ann Arbor, MI, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie lives in a bit of gray area - never exactly released in the US, but a copy turned up at my favorite video place. It's a bit more closely tied to the album "White City" than expected; the weird little spoken word snippets are actually of a street preacher in the movie.

Synopsis, as best as I can remember: The "White City" is sort of a British housing project - small apartments, a fair amount of poverty. The main character is a rather young fellow having problems with his marriage. Townshend appears as his friend, and essentially as himself (he's referred to as the "rock star" by at least one character in a pub). The action revolves around Townshend setting up a dance/concert in the project's swimming pool / civic center (warning! terrible 80's clothing and fake band members!!) while the main character breaks up with his wife.

The plot isn't that great, but it's still neat to watch. Also cool was some odd footage at the end of the video - a short interview with Townshend and also a live/studio performance of "Night School", a Townshend disco tune?!?
