Abstract

This article analyses the idea of "cool" and its production in relation to cities and their representation in film. It focuses on Wim Wenders' 1995 film "Lisbon Story" and Fatih Akin's "Crossing the Bridge" (2005) and examines how they represent their respective cities and how this image relates to other representations of the cities.
