Director Hiroshi Teshigahara’s film Antonio Gaudí, on the eponymous artist and architect, treats his audience to confections as rich as tiramisu and as sweet as cotton candy. Set in a dreamy black and white, Teshigahara gives a sort of walking tour of Gaudí’s prolific buildings, sculptures and various other creations.

Gaudí’s genius lies in his ability to make work that is original and beautiful, while at the same time often being whimsical, even Dr. Suess-ian. As a result, Gaudí’s buildings are among the most memorable and accessible in the world.

Much of the Catalan architect’s work exists in the breathtaking Spanish city of Barcelona, and the movie works as a travelogue as well.
