The Small Affairs of Quiet City
27 December 2010 | by (Old London, New England) – See all my reviews

'Quiet City' opens with Jamie, an attractive young woman from Atlanta, arriving in New York to visit an unreliable girlfriend, who fails to show up at the diner where they had arranged to meet. A random stranger, Charlie, is asked for directions, and he subsequently offers to let her stay at his scruffy apartment. The camera follows the pair throughout the next day while they try to contact Jamie's friend, take a walk in the park, visit a friend of Charlie's to retrieve a hat, go to a gallery opening and then on to a party. From the description above, it should be obvious that anyone whose cinematic taste leans towards car chases or werewolves is unlikely to be satisfied by the low-key plot elements of "Quiet City". The film's minimalist plot is thematically similar to Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise", but it lacks the mythic element and its production values are far more basic. The two protagonists are neither as articulate nor charismatic as Linklater's Viennese lovers, and their relationship is considerately less intense. However it becomes fascinating to observe a friendship develop through commonplace activities and banal conversation. Much of the film's success is due to Erin Fisher's easygoing Southern charm as Jamie - her beautiful eyes and enigmatic amused smile gradually dismantle Charlie's slacker exterior to expose a gentle chivalry that earns her affection. If anybody cares to give the film an even break, it could do the same for them.
