I saw this film on a huge canvas in Locarno on the Piazza Grande. Bridges is a requiem for the old lift bridge in Rotterdam, which Joris Ievens immortalized in De Brug in 1928. Rijneke quotes both that film and Ivens "Rain in a silent image rhapsody: a sober declaration of love and bridge with great cinematography by Rijneke and beautiful music by Zbignieuw Preisner.
