London River

Sunday 28th February 2:00 PM


In the aftermath of the London Tube bombings of 2005 two very different people look for their loved ones: Ousmane, an elderly African searches for his long-estranged son and Guernsey widow Elizabeth Summers hunts for her student daughter. A piece of photographic evidence links their quests, and slowly a relationship develops between them.

“Small-scale but beautifully detailed film,...[Brenda] magnificent, seeming to react rather than act and, without a false or sentimental note, managing to make us sympathise with her puzzled and anxious character. The dignified [Sotigui] Kouyate is splendid, too, adding his own perfectly pitched performance.”
