The Road - A Story of Life and Death (2013)
A fascinating and intimate insight into the lives of people who have come to London from afar in order to seek a better life and struggled to make the city their home. There's a young Irish woman who dreams of becoming a singer; an elderly Jewish woman who fled Vienna when Hitler was in power; and a glamorous retired German air stewardess living with her estranged husband. Wonderful moments of humour are fused with heart-breaking scenes that reveal broken dreams. The Road: A Story of Life and Death is a study of immigration that manages to be highly affecting, whilst avoiding being polemical or didactic.
