A long lustrous night
12 October 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Among the earliest scenes on record are various short films of city scene: Paris, New York -- even a Lumiere short about a lion in a London zoo. But those were made a decade and a half before and at this time the film-makers of Denmark were arguably the most advanced in terms of technique and film grammar: no longer innovative, perhaps, but solid, with a good sense of composition and camera movement.

The result here is a fine little movie. You may find it drags a bit as it shows you various portions of Copenhagen. But for me the great charm in these movies is not simply the distance in space, but in time: these were made 98 years ago. Looking at them, I wonder if we have advanced as people at all.
