Unusually for the big screen, bricks and mortar take the place of the main protagonist in "Cathedrals of Culture," which, despite its lofty title, neither features any religious edifices nor is devoted solely to high altars of the arts.Wenders, who kicks off the film with his visual ode to the 1963 Berlin Philharmonic concert hall, said 3-D's creative use was still at an early stage but he had wanted to explore its "great affinity" with architecture.Set to music by Moby, the film by Redford lingers on its geometric angles and symmetry, panning out to show the open space between the two wings and asks how the building influences the scientists working in its laboratories.Its sweeping photographic images, novel ideas on a building taking on a life of its own, and 3-D poking-about of its nooks and crannies extends the movie's appeal beyond architecture aficionados.
