Audience Reviews for In the White City

Just as I was looking at the complete list of all the Bruno Ganz movies on his Flixster profile it was no surprise that it was missing this movie title. And with no one having reviewed this yet in addition to the profile missing out the description of plot summary I think I'll make it very specific. Directed by Alain Tanner, In The White City is a haunting, bluesy mood-piece that tells of a disconnected sailor who jumps ship in Lisbon. Paul drifts through the streets of the ghostly "white city" with a movie camera in hand, filming himself and recording his unstructured search for something real. It was at the local bar when his spirit was unleashed by meeting the feisty, beautiful Rosa. I happened to have discovered this movie recently and only saw it 'cause Ganz is my favorite foreign actor at the moment, and when I saw him here he was really good in his acting performance. Beautifully photographed, In The White City is a well made film that, although hard to find, can be recommendable for the foreign film fan. (The dialogue is spoken in Portuguese, French, German, and English with English subtitles at the bottom of the screen.)
