An odd duck, I saw this years ago, and had few memories of it. Revisiting it was well worth it, though. It's beautifully filmed, if slight, but the solid, almost too good cast lends it more depth than there probably is.
I'd like to have spent a lot more time in Meanwhile City rather than London, though.
Gerald McMorrow hasn't made any more features, a bit like like Kelly Conron who came out of nowhere to make Sky Captain, and the disappeared. You'd think someone with this sort of visual flair at least could have landed a Doctor Who episode. Anyway, a fine way to spend an evening. I'm giving it a heart, too, because it's beautiful to look at and aspires to greatness, even if it only manages good.
