It is a short portrait of San Francisco shot almost entirely through reflections of all sorts: mirrors, shop windows, car windows, bottles.
One of the most beautiful films that uses the mirror to plasticize the filmmic image. Its tightly edited and filled with luminosity and mystery, as if the windows of the shops are a fragile witnesses of the urbanity surrounding it.
Reminds me a lot of Mirror of Holland (Bert Haanstra), but that one is carried out a lot better. The rhythm of the edit was nice in this one, the soundtrack didn't feel very complementary.
Visions Of A City shows San Franciscan streets and buildings in all their unmistakeable glory, even reflected in the warped windows and mirrors of the city. Gorgeous soundtrack too.
I concur with what Eye of Sound said above in the synopsis... except I think Moraldo's music was a good choice.
Thank you, Larry.
