Swinging London was a lot cooler than this. London 1967 was the year of Flower Power, Sgt. Pepper, Procul Harum. fantastic soul music, Mini Coopers with blacked out windows. King's Road. No sign of any of them here. In many ways this film is rather square. It has one foot in 1967 and the other in 1937, which is really strange.
What really made London and the 60s swing was the music. Did I mention the music? The music used for this film is mostly really, really awful...a sort of a bad 60s version of 30s big band swing.
Moving on now from the disappointing soundtrack. The film seems like a sort of patchwork of ideas stuck together not very well. Though some of the ideas were very good indeed. The photography is very good. London looks beautiful. The parks do, anyway. There's a beautiful sequence of Joanna running through Hyde Park which looks all lush and green. There's lots of green in this film and by the end I was big fan of green. It's nice to see people wearing clothes of many colours. Life in London 2011 is pretty morose clothes wise. There's a scene of a funeral in this film that could have been shot last week, everyone in black.
Fashion wise this film is spot on, actually and if 60s fashion interests you, click the 'buy it' button immediately. Joanna's outfits are terrific and they defintely capture the moment...if only the music had been better. If only Michael Sarne hadn't been so obsessed with the 30s.
Most of the acting is atrocious. Genevieve Waite had only been in England a few weeks when she was cast, yet she's supposed to represent 60s London? Her art teacher talks, I think, with a German accent.Read more ›
