Under the Starry Sky

The idea that the future of humankind is to be found nowhere else but in the city is perfectly captured and expressed in this movie, which has three urban locations: Turin, Dakar, and New York City. What you will enjoy in this well-paced drama is the cinematography, the substance of each of the interconnected stories, and a number of the performances. You will also be surprised by how the Turin section (the story of a young and very traditional woman looking for her husband, but he has moved to New York City without telling her) ends (a post-racial utopia).
