Souvenirs de Madrid

Memories of Madrid - Ricordi di Madrid
Directed by Jacques DuronItalian title: Memories of Madrid - Ricordi di Madrid
France / 2008 / 64'

This is a portrait of Madrid, filmed as it were a small village: it is a film in inventory form. It is a documentary without any voice-over devices. It is a survey of present-day Madrid, a kind of socioanthropological essay made up, as a kind of recital, of present moments succeeding one another, and presented without judgement. Small street scenes follow one another, with a straightforward, un-dramatic vision of Madrid as a backdrop. The film’s protagonist is Madrid, considered not as an architectural but as a biological entity, as a living thing.
