MARGATE IN THE '50s
24 October 1999 | by (Limerick,Ireland) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable short feature, a wry look at the British seaside resort of Margate in the 1950's, when it was a shining beacon in the world of British theme parks. Director Anderson captures expressions and everyday incidents in loving detail, and while this isn't as memorable as, for instance, Jean Vigo's A PROPOS DE NICE, it's an interesting nostalgia piece for those who care about the country or the era.
