"In The White City"
Directed by Alain Tanner
When his ship lands in Lisbon, a disconnected sailor
drifts through the streets and twisting alleys of the ghostly "white city,"
recording himself and his impressions with a Super-8 camera. He settles into
a room above a saloon, and soon finds himself in an affair with the barmaid.
Keeping a diary on film, he lets his world slip away; his ship leaves port
without him, and he sends obscure notes (with some of his film) to his wife
in Switzerland. A poignant and beautifully acted film starring Bruno Ganz
and Teresa Madruga. French, Portuguese, German and English with subtitles.
