What's the name of that film? I've seen Finisterre (which is a pretty poor rip-off of PK) but this is a different film isn't it?

I went to Bluewater the other day (dont ask) and going well past Greenwich, there's this kind of...shanty town...with loads of tents. You can barely see it from the road. I guess it's for volunteers, or army people, or something. It was like...tents. I mean, what's that about?

This should maybe be in the Olympics thread.
