In the White City

Dans la ville blanche

Directed by Alain Tanner
United Kingdom, Portugal, 1983


A Swiss sailor jumps ship in Lisbon, tired of the noisy engine room, the ship. He rents a room and does little. He writes letters to his lover, describing the whiteness of the city, the solitude and the silence. He sends his love and emptiness; she replies with love and confusion.
