All kinds of reality are the relics of the past. We lost in eras with our belated awareness. All kinds of films are the present turning into the history. We unconsciously accept all these predictions. Therefore, when we were in the 1990s, facing with the screens, we were also looking into a mirror of double faces: one showed the lingering reflections and echoes coming from the 80s, while in the other we saw confusions and determinations intrinsic within the films. Now we look back on the films of the 1980s and the 1990s, to review these images about the city and the era, and to specify the perplexed emotional status of that time.
