Description: Originally Dans la Ville Blanche, the Swiss/Portuguese In the White City features Bruno Ganz as a cinematically inclined Swiss sailor. While on liberty in Lisbon, Ganz decides to soak in the sights, committing his visit to posterity with an 8-millimeter movie camera. His ship sets sail, but Ganz remains in Lisbon, trying to explain his escape (which includes an affair with chambermaid Teresa Madruga) in long rambling letters to his wife. In the White City was directed by Alain Tanner, best known for his stream-of-consciousness Jonah Who Will be 25 in the Year 2000.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
