Catalan architect Antonio Gaudí (18521926) designed some of the worlds most astonishing buildings, interiors, and parks; Japanese director Hiroshi Teshigahara (Woman in the Dunes) constructed some of the most aesthetically audacious films ever made. Here their artistry melds in a unique, enthralling cinematic experience, with a haunting score by Toru Takemitsu. Less a documentary than a visual poem, Antonio Gaudí takes viewers on a tour of spectacular architecture, including Gaudís unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. Much of the imagery is nothing less than astounding in its beauty and boldness (Stephen Holden, New York Times).
