Dir Patrick Keiller
With Paul Scofield

Digital
Certificate U

In Keiller’s tantalising first feature, an unseen narrator (Scofield) tells of research into English Romanticism carried out in 1992 by his mysterious (and likewise unseen) friend Robinson – research that has the pair trying to grasp what went wrong with London. Himself an architect, Keiller charts a flâneur’s odyssey around the city that embraces political satire, historical fact, literary allusion, urban myth and much offbeat humour.

Also available on BFI Player.
