A film by Terrence Davies
Celebrated director Terence Davies takes a trip back to his childhood city of Liverpool in this beautiful and personal documentary, ranked by Time magazine among the top ten films of 2009. At once a joyful remembrance of Daviesí childhood home and a eulogy of what is now lost, OF TIME AND THE CITY marks a triumphant return to filmmaking for Davies after an eight-year absence.
Comprising largely of archival footage and photographs set to contemporary and classical music, OF TIME AND THE CITY is more than a documentary, it is a visual poem: a hymn to former glories, a critique of past indulgences and a dreamlike reminder of how you can never return to the perfection of your memories.
