Of Time And The City

4

An honest and beautiful examination of Liverpool's past

A remembrance of Liverpudlian things past, Terence Davies’ cine-poem is an impassioned ode to the city of his youth.

Marshalling reel after reel of archive material, Davies mingles Liverpool’s social history with his own memories. By turn fond, anguished and waspish, his narration is defiantly nostalgic for bygone times.

His dulcet tones also introduce influential 1942 doc Listen To Britain, a highlight among the extras.
