A fifties-set London musical drama revisited
TO mark its 30th anniversary, this Brit rock musical drama set in 1950s London, is re-mastered in Blu-ray quality.
What’s l ikely to attract most attention however, is a performance by the late David Bowie (pictured).
He plays a real estate developer with grand designs on revamping a racially troubled part of the city.
While the song he gets in the filmThat’s Motivation is instantly forgettable, his theme tune is a memorable treat.
But seeing Bowie doing a soft-shoe number on a giant typewriter keyboard may be worth every pennyto fans. The film is a neon-bright image of pre-Beatles Britain with Patsy Kensit as hippyfashiondesigner SuzetteandEddieO’Connell as her rival Colin.
