A sunny Saturday afternoon in Zurich. In the middle of a crowded square a businessman is lying on a bench, seemingly asleep. Someplace else, a teenager is longing for appreciation. A commuter is fighting the ticket machine. The film shows ten tableaux of everyday situations in the city. The people in them are confronted with small or big problems. Each one of them is a Sisyphos, endlessly rolling the little stones of daily life up the mountain.

"

Locarno is ... sitting in the dark Fevi with hundreds of people and not knowing what to expect. Locarno is the Piazza Grande in the rain, perfectly matched to the scene playing like an elaborate 4D experience. Locarno is the GranRex, where immortal classics flicker across the screen in 35mm. Locarno is, and has been for 10 years, my window to a new world of cinema.
