Michael Glawogger pays homage to the international metropolis in these portraits of New York City, Mexico City, Bombay and Moscow - and their inhabitants, struggling to survive. “A true symphony of a metropolis.” (Jonathan Rosenbaum) "Cinema is like a train in motion. Every decent movie is a window showing a new landscape. Seen as a metaphor, this includes all movies - from the Lumiere brothers first films to Michael Glawogger’s masterpieces. MEGACITIES is twelve stories of survival, twelve landscapes seen through the window of a train.” (Alexander Horwath, "Die Zeit”)
