Die Parallelstraße

Ferdinand Khittl West Germany, 1962

Joao Pedro Amorim's rating of the film The Parallel Street

talking clichés: imagine sans soleil, replace the french poetic sense for the german over-analytical mania. not only parallelstrasse is also an assembly of "travelogues", but several of the themes are shared by the two films. nevertheless, the tone of Ferdinand Fhittl lacks the harmony and unity of chris marker's film, released around 20 years after.
