Overview

A side of London rarely experienced by tourists is seen in this spare, austere mix of narrative film and documentary. The filmmaking team behind Robinson in Space returns to the capitol of the United Kingdom to find out just how much a modern city can change in the short window of seven years. Upon returning to London to tour the city with his longtime lover Robinson, a mysterious traveler (Paul Scofield, heard only in voice-over) sets his sights on a series of fascinating historical locales made famous by such popular authors as Edgar Allen Poe and French poet Charles Baudelaire. In their journeys through city streets once brimming with vitality, the traveler soon finds that London has become but a shadow of its former glory due to the damaging effects of pollution, IRA bomb scares, and urban decay.
