Listen up! This movie is the zeitgeist!
19 October 1999 | by chris-711See all my reviews

Greenwich Meantime is one of the freshest, most invigorating films to come out of the UK in years. It tackles head on the issues and emotions involved with being a young person at the end of the century in London - living in the city, having no money, no direction and being in the same boat as many others. This is Simon Mirren's real strength - the ability to write honest, compelling and emotionally powerful relationships. There are several moments in this film which pass the 'tingle' factor with flying colours. I look forward to seeing Mr. Mirren's future work with bated breath and in the certainty that it will accurately reflect these times.
