From award-winning filmmaker Michael Glawogger is a film about work, poverty, violence, love and sex. "Megacities" is a powerful glimpse into lives of extreme desperation lived on the fringes of four major cities; Bombay, New York, Mexico City, and Moscow. Told through twelve compelling tales the film depicts the day to day lives of men and women as they set about their struggle for survival with ingenuity, intelligence and dignity. Where they share a single fantasy: the dream of a better life. In "Megacities" we meet an Indian colour-sifter trapped in Bombay, a Mexican stripper and single mother of several children, a New York petty grifter who cons and robs gay men to support his heroin habit, and a group of Muscovite street-urchins who live via petty theft and begging like latter-day Dickensian waifs. These are only a few scattered close-ups into the hard existences of the millions of others who disappear into the teeming masses. Many of the film's remarkable and gritty images will undoubtedly lead viewers to evaluate the relative success or failure their own lives, or cause them to feel thankful for what we have. Feature will leave you with the idea that many people live lives that we cannot possibly imagine, and may indeed ourselves be unable to endure.
