Brought to you by The Lexi, Nomad Cinema is a roaming pop-up cinema with a difference; 100% of the Nomad's profits go to their chosen charity, The Sustainability Institute in South Africa. Since 2010, The Nomad has earned the reputation as ‘London’s best outdoor cinema’ (Evening Standard), popping up at an inspiring range of beautiful, curious and downright strange screening locations across London and beyond.
More than just providing screenings of great films in appropriately great locations, Nomad events immerse you in the flavour of the film, with added elements such as music, themed decorations, quality catering and a warm friendly welcome…
Located just off the beautiful Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park, immerse yourself in the tranquility of this gorgeous space. Take in the stars, and enjoy the film!
Two neighbours (Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung) betrayed by their spouses form a tender, reserved friendship, in the claustrophobic, lonely setting of their apartment block. Separated by convention and shyness, the ache of uncertain love is explored with almost unbearable understatement. Leung, the quiet, lonely, impossibly handsome hero, whispering his secret into a wall.
The lush, swooning palette of Christopher Doyle’s cinematography is ripened by sensuality and tempered by elegant set design – not to mention costumes to die for. How can anyone be so sad, when they look so good? A Brief Encounter for the 21st Century.
