Designing London

Following the Victoria & Albert Museum’s recent study day on British production design, focusing on Ken Adam, this series highlights the work of a range of great production designers who have all created distinctive visions of London.

Mona Lisa (1986)  d. Neil Jordan  des. Jamie Leonard

Writer-director Neil Jordan’s breakthrough film is a brilliant, noir-infused love story. Bob Hoskins (who snagged an Oscar nomination for his performance) plays George, a small-time loser employed as a chauffeur to an enigmatic, high-class call girl. His fascination with her leads him on a dangerous quest through the sordid underbelly of London, where love is a weakness to be exploited and betrayed. Criterion is proud to present Mona Lisa in a director-approved special edition.
