This very nicely shot sequence of The Rocks in early evening effectively creates a warm, friendly and inviting mood in well-restored historic settings. The first piece of commissioned music is nicely evocative, and the well-timed editing of the night life sits comfortably with it. The final scene of the jazz band, shot live, is particularly appealing.
