CINÉMA-VÉRITÉ

ASTRAGAL

The new Woody Allen fi lm Match Point, which opens early next year, features a number of shots of London landmarks spliced together in the style of a travelogue. The lead character, and all round nasty piece of work, is played by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, of Bend it Like Beckham fame, who is lucky enough to live in a plush flat overlooking Charles Barry's Palace of Westminster and works 'in finance' at the top of Foster and Partners' Gherkin.

His girlfriend, Scarlett Johansson, goes to an audition at Sloane Square's Royal Court, and he disposes of criminal evidence a stone's throw from Ian Simpson's proposed 220m-high tower at No 1 Blackfriars Road. Just like watching a home movie.
