Nostalgic & Fascinating
19 April 2018 | by chris-4016See all my reviews

All manner of interesting detail, if you study it well

Classic cars, like the Ford Zodiac, with whitewall tyres, and the Citroen Traction Avant

The planes and airline scenes are well worth studying too

The plot might be thin by today's standards, but the Brussells street views more than make up for it

I found it thoroughly entertaining, and worth watching
