BOND IN MOTION – EXHIBITION IN LONDON
After the wonderful exhibition “Designing 007” two years ago, London is once again offering a brilliant chance to see James Bond artifacts up close This time, the exhibition “BOND IN MOTION” concentrates on every Bondian transportation device: the cars, the motorcycles, the planes, the boats, the submarines. They are all there: the Aston Martin in its many forms, the Lotus Esprit and the Wet Bike (from “The Spy Who Loved Me”), Little Nellie (from “You Only Live Twice”), the Acrostar (from “Octopussy”), heck – everything is here, even the cello case (from “The Living Daylights”), the Burial Bed (from “You Only Live Twice”) and the Honda all-terrain motorcycle (from “Diamonds Are Forever”)! (Also, you can see some chosen storyboards and Bond´s many passports.)
To see all those legendary vehicles right in front of you will certainly give any fan goosebumps. It´s one thing to admire them on the big screen – but to actually have them on display in your reach… well, you obviously cannot touch them. But you can go around them, marvel at the detailed design (or in the case of the “Quantum of Solace”-Aston Martin DBS feel shocked at the level of damage it has suffered during the PTS). Also, you wonder how uncomfortable it must be for the actor to actually sit in these cars and mini-planes. Especially the Acrostar must have given Sir Roger some claustrophobic moments. Housed in the LONDON FILM MUSEUM in Covent Garden, “BOND IN MOTION” is an absolute must-see for any fan or film buff. It is splendidly presented and absolutely worth the price of admission.
