Review: London River
Among the most heart-warming films made internationally on the theme of terror is Franco-Algerian director Rachid Bouchareb’s award-winning London River (2009), a UK-France-Algeria co-production. It revisits the London bus and train bombings of July 2005 but shuns the carnage. Its focus is on the frantic search by parents for their missing children. Two ordinary, very different individuals comb the streets of down-market London, afraid and alone. Bouchareb’s gripping drama claws at the heart but ends with the most gentle of touches.
