Empire of the Moon1991

  • 3.4
EMPIRE OF THE MOON wryly deconstructs the experience of being a tourist. Paris, gorgeously photographed in black-and-white, is the setting for cultural explorations ranging from the mundane to the sublime, as visitors trek from icon to icon, snapping the same photos, climbing the same steps and at times experiencing the transformative wonder they came to find.

A reasonably interesting mediation on the banality of tourism.

like coming across an affectionate postcard. my family is on their way to Paris and watching this film adds to my wistfulness that I cannot join them.

very well done but not what I enjoy watching
