Storyline

Sansa is a young man. The camera pursues him, takes a peep at him, tries to catch his face, his look, his cap. The camera gets out of breath running after the man, becoming an observer, a friend into his endless trip between the stations of Paris, the streets of Spain and Portugal, Italy and Hungary, Burkina Faso and Egypt, India, the illuminated roads and boards and lounges of Japan. Sansa is a free-minded and impulsive. He is a man who will accost people on the street - women - to be courted, next minute - to be forgotten. He will get into trouble, but behind the next corner he will run away. May be the next train will take him to the end of his adventure ... Written by Virginia Valeva <vdvaleva@abv.bg>

Rocambolesque Travelogue
16 March 2004 | by heyvaleraSee all my reviews

Imagine yourself as a world traveler, who wants to see the world, who is looking for a love of the woman. Imagine you have no money, but great personality, artistic skills and curiosity. Imagine there is a soundtrack and a digital camera which sees everything you see, maybe even the way you see it. Part-dynamic digital photography, part-Discovery Channel, part-VH1, part-Arts and Entertainment, it is hard to nail an appropriate label for this gem of visual artistry. Clearly following the path of Dziga Vertov and Jean Vigo, Sig Zag aka Siegfried created a very personal, yet universal travelogue of our world (or at least three continents). We cross Spain, Portugal, France, Hungary, Russia, Japan, Egypt etc. We see faces of the children, men and women, old and young, beautiful and strange traffic patterns, we travel on trains, planes and automobiles, we become hostages to the Chechen guerrillas, beaten up by the airport security - you have to see it to appreciate the chance to get fully immersed in Sig Zag's vision of the world. Roschdy Zem (or, Le Rosch) is absolutely phenomenal in this excrutiatingly personal film - it is hard to lie with a camera literally in his face, relentlessly up close. Highly recommended - not for home viewing, as everything may distract from this extremely nuanced and finely tuned film.
