They were great movies at that time, but if you see them today you feel nothing. Because we have changed, and it is the same with architecture. One of my favourite films back then was "Hiroshima Mon Amour" by Alain Resnais. I saw recently a film called "Lost in Translation" by Sophia Coppola which is the same idea, it's Japan, it's an older man with a younger woman, etc., but the difference between these two film to me describes the difference between 1965 and 2005.
Sophia Coppola film is a fantastic architectural movie as was "Hiroshima Mon Amour": the story for me is secondary, but the visual impact of that movie is amazing! Architecture has to come to terms with this. We have to find a way to do the same things that Antonioni was doing or that Fellini was doing or Bellocchio or Rosi but now, today. And for an architect it is the same: you cannot do the same thing that Le Corbusier was doing or that Palladio was doing, we have to deal with the sensibility that we find today.
ou know, my kids can't sit still, they have to be listening to music, they can't read like we used to, they can't deal with the environment in the same way, they need something happening all the time.
