This refreshing comedy follows a Spanish photographer, Gustavo Fernandez (Antonio Resines), as he travels to Manhattan dreaming of fame. He finds out fast that a camera and famous skyline aren't all that's necessary to assure his success. Gustavo loves New York but has a hard time fitting

in. Trying to overcome the language barrier, he enrolls in an English class but unfortunately learns nothing of real importance. While hanging out with the Greenwich Village art crowd, he becomes friends with a Southern novelist (Roy Hoffman) who is infatuated with a woman from Barcelona (Beatriz

Perez-Porro). SKYLINE's most notable success is its depiction of Gustavo's interaction with his new friends--Resines perfectly conveys a likable foreigner's attempts to adjust to his new surroundings. Yet it is not only his struggle that is fascinating but also the "customs" that Americans take

for granted, which, seen from his perspective, are indeed a little strange. Honestly and economically directed by Fernando Colomo, SKYLINE was filmed on a microscopic budget in a style that is as simple as its central character, allowing the audience to feel the city that nearly envelops the

Spaniard. (In Spanish and English; English subtitles.)
