A young filmmaker by the name of Jack Fisher put together this visual homage to the city of Bath, which was indeed originally a spa called Aquae Sulis, with baths built around local hot springs. The city's history is ancient, and Edgar the Peaceful was crowned King of England in 973 at Bath Abbey. Ancient architecture stands out proudly amidst modern shops and university students that frankly, look a little out of place. In fact, I'd prefer that both visitors and residents of the tiny town, with a population of 80,000, adhere to a strict dress code à la Sophia Coppola's take on Marie Antoinette– but of course, I can't enforce that.
