Prescient, though somewhat inscrutable, take on urban reform
5 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Hubleys were commissioned to make this film for some sort of urban housing reform. As usual, they got some great musicians to do the soundtrack like Benny Carter and Maynard Ferguson. The plot concerns a feisty battle between a city with legs and a farmer. Some of the issues that are touched on in this battle are resource management and how the city's needs sometimes conflict with the people in the country who supply the city with resources. At least I THINK that's what it's about as you have to read a lot into the fast moving images in "Urbanissimo" to try and figure out what the "message" is. But the film is so short it really doesn't matter, and it comes off as a mildly diverting oddity.
