THE DREAM OF A LONDON SNAIL
I think I mentioned here that Waterloo Bridge was known as “The Bridge of Sighs” – mainly because of the many suicides that jumped from it in the 19th century. But also that that name suits its function as a romantic assignation point for lovers. And of course in a kind of psycho-geographical loop it helps foster the very things it has become associated with.
It is no surprise then that Don Brosnan’s film “The Dream of a Snail” for The Real Tuesday Weld track “You’re Going to Live”, which was shot there, combines high romance and potentially suicidal action. Don made the film aided and abetted by GG McEwan at some considerable expense and risk as you will see. So prepare to be moved, amazed and amused by this “slow-motion rom-com road movie”..
