The Lobby

Heinz EMIGHOLZ
Germany, Argentina 2020 76min DCP color Fiction G Korean Premiere
Overview

A sardonic distillation of themes revolving around death, consciousness, and human relationships. The sequel to The Last City – morbid, confrontational and hilarious.

Review

An old white man is sitting in the lobby of a traditional and graceful apartment building in Buenos Aires. Now the story which was told in The Last City in a form of a dialogue transforms into a monologue. However, we can find that The Lobby continues to talk about the things that The Last City discussed, including death and relationship. The American actor John Erdman is the only actor in this film and possibly the filmmaker’s surrogate. However, the other protagonist of this film must be the viewers. And the “stage” that he talks about must be the numerous lobbies in Buenos Aires, which keep the secret and beauty of the old city. Why did Emigholz choose Buenos Aires to tell a story? It is probably because Buenos Aires is one of the last cities for Emigholz. (Sung MOON)
