The White Bus : A csinos fiatal lányt kiemelik öngyilkos londoni környezetéből és egy furcsa buszúton hazajut Észak-Angliába. A kamera művészi szemén keresztül ismerjük meg a kudarcra ítélt brit morbiditást és Lindsay Anderson rendező elismert “Ha” című filmjének előjátékát. (Outline): The main character, only referred to as ‘the girl’ takes a trip in a white double-decker bus around an unnamed city she is visiting, although it is clearly meant to be Manchester; Delaney was born and grew in nearby Salford. Oddly enough, the Mayor, a local businessman, and the council’s ceremonial macebearer happen to also be taking the trip.
Locations include Albert Square and its landmark, the Town Hall and the nearby Central Library. The ‘model estate’ of high-rise flats was shot on the Kersal Flats estate, while the factory sequences were shot in Trafford Park, including the Metropolitan-Vickers works. It also featured scenes on Cheetham Hill Road and inside Cheetham College (now demolished). Both the exterior and interior shots of the school were taken in the former Pendleton High School for Girls – now mainly demolished, but with the original Victorian building converted to a retirement home. Using local people, Anderson also staged parodies of paintings by Manet (Le déjeuner sur l’herbe), Fragonard and Goya in Buile Hill Park in Salford. It was Anthony Hopkins film debut in a small role, while Stephen Moore, is a (young) bowler-hatted man who pesters the heroine with nonsense just after her arrival.
Lassú internet, illetve nagyobb videónál előfordulhat, hogy a videóra másodpercet (esetleg egy kicsivel többet) is várnod kell, indítás után!..
