Documenting what?
23 August 2015 | by sara-martin-1See all my reviews

This is a documentary that should have been great but that is not. It deals with an emblematic building in Madrid, its first skyscrape: Edificio España, inaugurated in 1953. Built by foreign investors, the building is now the object of much controversy between the new Madrid Mayor, Manuela Carmena, and the owners -she wants to keep it as intact as possible, they want to modify it as much as they can. For money, of course. Now, this documentary has nothing to with all this controversy. It just follows a crew of workers as they strip bare some of the floors. The documentary attempts to be creative, in imitation of the wonderful 'En construcción' but only manages to be inmenseley boring, excruciatingly slow and, sorry to be traditional, not didactic at all. If, after seeing a documentary, the spectator has learned nothing, then, what is the point?
