| Fascinating look on the works of Nervi
Heinz Emigholz shows in his film the works of the Italian architect Pier Luigi Nervi who uses Beton as material. Beton was first used by the Romans and Emigholz show us old ancient Roman buildings.Like in his previous films about architecture the filmmaker concentrates his look on the buildings and finds absolutely fascinating perspectives which let the buildings come to life. Visually this is one of the most beautiful shot films you can see. The sound records the atmosphere of the buildings and lets you experience the depths of the rooms. The images and the sound really draw you into the world of Nervi. It is a unique way to experience his art.
