Definitely worth a look...
16 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

Made along very similar lines to 'Life in a Day' (2011), this documentary is made from short films and clips made by people in the UK on 12th November 2011. It was organised by the BBC and the film premiered on BBC2 this week. I must say I enjoyed it very much, particularly the music, which really fitted the visuals very well.

Several threads are followed throughout the day, but the film takes us through from the early hours until late at night. An eclectic mix of themes, everything from sport to babies to weddings to pets (and much more). At times very touching and also quite infuriating in places too, it really takes you through the whole gamut of emotions. At the end of it I must say I was left with a feeling of pride that I live in such a diverse and brilliant country… Please don't turn it into America!... Don't get me wrong, I like America, there are many wonderful things about it. I just feel that in the modern world with instant communication and modern media Britain is losing its identity and (for me) that's not necessarily a good thing. (Sorry for getting a bit political there).

Back to the film, just like 'Life in a Day', there is no voice-over, just the people of Britain telling their own stories on one particular day. I really enjoyed it, particularly the story of the wedding, that really touched my heart. It maybe loses some impact because it has been done before, but even so, it's well worth a look… Recommended.

My score: 7.8/10
