I have seen the films PARIS & NewYork. It's a bit of shock to me, actually. The way to show surprises and emotions of the city's people and the scenes engineered give me a bang slap in the eye. I conjured up images of my own life when I was watching, the strong feelings for cities are interlinked. What's the nature of the feelings or the films ? A life with love right ?
There is also a film about Suzhou shocks lots of people in China. More accurately, it is a documentary. Its name is GARDEN (园林), the most representative culture about suzhou.
"spirit" may be the appropriate word in my mind.
This is very different from your films.
And I want to know where you get the idea about the structure of City films ?
