Synopsis / Plot
Alain Tanner's “In The White City” is a haunting piece that follows a disconnected sailor, namely Paul, who decides to jump ship in Lisbon. Bruno Ganz plays this Swiss sailor, who suddenly finds himself absorbed by the ghostly "white city" on the edge of the Atlantic. He wanders the city's streets and alleys, shooting Super-8 films that he sends to his wife back in Switzerland as explanations of what's going on in his life.
