Review

A film on the mystery of city. Films that use city as main subject have a long history. An experimental documentary filmmaker Cousins presents a city by combining scenery and space. When the film begins, audiences meet unfamiliar place and an aged lady. Following her footstep, the film goes to a dream-like city with strange place and scenery. As her story grows serious, the film reveals the tragedy of the city. While exploring the relationship between city and human, the film challenges to typical films in the genre of city symphony film by utilizing the thriller and romantic mood. Great crews including cinematographer Christopher Doyle and composer David Holmes also played very important part. The film avoids typical drama or documentary styles but presents the inner sketch through scenery in a poetic and dramatic way. (JANG Byungwon)
