"In the City" is a subtitled Spanish film about the ups and downs in the lives of a slew of 30+ middle class men and women who are interconnected by a variety of relationships. This uneventful, all dialogue film simply follows these characters around town conjuring snippets of their lives from small talk to infidelity while presenting the viewer with a whole lot of subtitles to read. In spite of a very well acted and directed presentation, "In the City" has a scant plot with little to offer save voyeurism which is little pay-off for all the subtitle reading required to follow the motley mix of characters through the nuances of their relationships. Worth a look for Spanish speakers those into "friends" flicks. All others beware. (B)
