Three voyages, three cities, Moscow, Rome, Tokyo. Different forms, different spaces. Reflecting, crossing each other in my eyes and in my memory They form yet another space, The space of memories, memories of voyages, Of voyages into the space of memories of these cities, Into the space of reflections and crossings. Pieces of images of different cities appear as seen from a rapidly moving train. The sound of the train accentuates this motion. Initially, it is possible to distinguish the features of each of the cities. Gradually, the number of layers increases; they overlap and merge with each other in various ways accompanied by a variety of street sounds. Phrases and melodies, sometimes recognizable, finally give way to the sound of city traffic. Through the multiplication of all of these elements, an incredible, imaginary city emerges as seen through the ever-present eyes of the filmmaker.
