Taking place over twenty four hours, the story centres on Will Fletcher, a passionate musician, and Eve Fisher, a beautiful, free-spirited woman who works in the local bar. Whilst struggling to cope with a tragic secret, Will saves Eve from a drunken customer at closing time and their paths become inextricably linked. Intrigued by one another, they journey through London, not knowing what the night holds or what the day may bring. As dawn turns to light and the two draw ever closer, can Will reveal the truth to Eve? Written by
Each revolution of the London Eye takes about 30 minutes. The film makers used two pods and the shots used in the film are pieced together from eight revolutions of the wheel. See more »
When Will buys the gift at the florist, he puts it into his right-hand jacket pocket as he comes out of the shop. When he and Eve shelter from the rain with Eve now wearing his jacket, he says, "I got you a present," and takes the box from the left hand pocket. See more »
I enjoyed this film a lot, it was more than I was expecting. It's not your standard romantic drama, and it's clear that there was no big budget or fanfare with this - but that's why I liked it. It meant that there was no distraction from the two main characters in the film and I could concentrate on their stories. Tobias Menzies plays his character with an understated confidence, he allows you to understand him and his ways in your own time. Genevieve O'Reilly is also good and plays a very likable character. There's a chapter of her story, involving her grandmother, which felt a little 'shoe-horned' in, and there may have been another way of introducing the subject of memory to the film in a less contrived way. I never saw the end coming (the two have a conversation at the end in which all is revealed), and the final scenes were really good - although nobody warned me this film was a weepy! All in all, a good film and I'm pleased to have watched it.
