I'm Not Here (1994)

Film details


In 1970 the actor Alec Guinness wrote a letter of complaint to 'The Times' newspaper about the lack of attention shop assistants give to customers. The letter was published under the heading 'I'm Not Here'. Using that story as its inspiration this film about shop assistants and boredom wittily combines extracts from a Harrods' training video and original footage of Miss London Stores 1970.
