Storyline

Sharon Newton (Cassie Stuart) leads the uncooperative James Richards (Charles Dance) into a world of misplaced government secrets, capitalistic artists and bungling secret agents. Will the truth be out? Will the meaning of the hidden film footage spliced into innocuous Government Information Films be discovered? And what is so important about these misplaced medical records? Hidden City is a film set in a London made hidden by the layers of history and secrets. Written by Robert Leather <user@robert.leather.softnet.co.uk>

Good Views of Hidden London
25 January 2003 | by samwise2See 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.
