Somewhere Between Dreams and Reality
30 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

A tragic love story entangled in the underworld of dirty business and thus in violence and crime. Restless City is captivating from beginning to end. The film is not big on dialogue but that is okay because the images speak for themselves. Indeed, it was filmed beautifully, with an excellent use of lighting, scenes sped up and slowed down and sometimes slightly out of focus. Every detail of every frame is nearly picture perfect. Restless City was able to create or capture something that most other films do not, atmosphere. Although the story line is somewhat shallow, the atmosphere is raw and at times dreamy. Restless City, in my opinion, is unjustifiably underrated.
