Variety | 'I Am Belfast' Review

Variety

Any old documentary can give you the history of a city, but it takes a special kind of movie to capture its spirit, from the way the sun reflects off its walls to the smell of rain on its streets. Mark Cousins’ “I Am Belfast” transcends what is expected of such a portrait, inviting audiences on a sensory journey of the Northern Ireland capital, patiently guiding them through a deeply personal visual essay, where a radiant copper-headed woman embodies the very essence of the city — a 10,000-year-old soul sent to welcome visitors and bless those who have criss-crossed its neighborhoods all their lives.

The story is too old to be commented.
