Al cinema con l’architetto – vol. IV

This volume brings together reviews of films seen by the author between 2019 and 2020. Grütter’s interest in film goes back to the 60s and 70s, when there were few sources of visual information and knowledge of cities was filtered by the cinema, becoming the almost exclusive prerogative of cinéphiles. At that time she realised that the more she saw of the city, the more she was interested in film. It is only recently, thanks to the interactivity of the internet, that Grütter began to write her comments on some websites. The possibility of participating as audience led her to share her reflections, thoughts and impressions of films. The selection included in this book is therefore far from exhaustive, and mainly reflects the author’s taste in films, but it gives us the advantage of seeing cinema through the eyes of an architect.
