Good Views of Hidden London
25 January 2003 | by (Hertfordshire, England) – See all my reviews

I loved this film for two reasons.

Firstly, it was well written and the direction was strong which is something often lacking in a British film.

Secondly, the scenes of London were fantastic; especially those parts of the city not always open to the public eye.
