Warsaw Bridge

Pont de Varsòvia

Directed by Pere Portabella
Spain, 1989
Drama

Synopsis

Warsaw Bridge portrays a romantic triangle between a novelist, a conductor, and a marine-biology professor who are anecdotally linked to the elusive story of a scuba diver found dead in a burning forest.

Our take

Catalan director Pere Portabella, whose 91st birthday is today, is one of the great figures of Spanish cinema. In his wondrous and unclassifiable Warsaw Bridge, the filmmaker fractures his film’s story to compose a sophisticated artifact able to defy History and question collective (in)memory.

Critics reviews

If the imagery and scenery suggest later Buñuel, the world-weary mood and suave discontinuity have more in common with the recent work of Jean-Luc Godard.
