A movie or a documentary?
3 December 2001 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

First of all, i would like to say that i like slowly movies, but this is not what i thought. My favorite director is Ingmar Bergman, so you can understand what i mean. But slowness must be necessary. If it is not, a movie could be terribly boring. This movie is about life in a marginal barcelonas suburb and it shows how a building constructure can change the human life of the neighbourhood. The problem, in my point of view, is that this movie doesn´t tell any story at all. It only shows how do the workers work and what conversations do they have during them works. This dialogues are not interesting at all because are the dialogues you can hear waiting for the bus.Nonsenses dialogues. i mean. Otherwise, the movie doesn´t tell any story, no fear, no love, no friendship... It hasn´t got a beginning and it hasn´t got an end. Its during is about 2 hours and 5 minutes but i think that if you just do not see the first hour an a half, nothing serious would happen with the final comprehension. So if you want to know how some workers work... do not waste your money... just go to any square of your town where a building is being built and enjoy the situaion. I would like to say that the movie has got nice images ; the problen is that non dialogues and any action at all complete them. And most of the sequences are very , very long , so it is difilcut to pay attention with interest.

It is not even a movie. It´s just a kind of documentary. A 2 hours documentary that would be exactly the same if it was 25 minutes long. In my humble opinion National Geography documentarys are much, much better than this one. And what about the actors? They are non professional actors and they do it quite well. But they pronounce very bad and it´s dificult to understand what they say. If you can, watch it with subtitles. So this is what i think... I would like to say that my english is not very fluently and that this has been a very big problem for me to say what i wanted to say. Thank you very much.
