The film, the classic topos of modernity, is a gift to cinema and the city of New York. It is also a weightless instruction of how an exact observation of a city using fairy-tale outlines can find itself and reveal something new. “Insight into the cities is linked to the deciphering of their dreamlike pictures,” writes Siegfried Kracauer. LONESOME was Fejo’s self-declared love film. Gerhard Gruber will accompany the silent version of the film on the piano.
