Depicted: the backwards clock of the British Bar @ 52 rua Bernardino Costa, Cais do Sodré, Lisboa … on cellphone video by Kate (2010-07). See also: “Dérive dans les bars” by José Cardoso Pires. Source: Lisbonne. Livre de bord. Voix, regards, resouvenances.(Gallimard 1998, collection Arcades #57, ISBN 9782070750696) as discovered via “Le goût de Lisbonne. Textes choisis et présentés par Jean-Noël Mouret.” (Mercure de France 2002, ISBN 9782715223059) … tnx StA! Pires’ Lisbon log book has not been translated in English yet, but it has been published in Dutch as “Lissabon een logboekstemmen, gezichtspunten en mijmeringenby Bas Lubberhuizen in 1998, ISBN 9789076314075. The original Portuguese editionLisboa, livro de bordovozes, olhares, memoraçõesdates from 1997/1998, Publicações Dom Quixote, ISBN 9789722014226.

Apparently, Pires was not fond of the way Alain Tanner depicted Lisbon in his (wonderful) film Dans la ville blanche(1983) which features scenes at the British Bar and shows the reverse clock … Do check out the exquisite acting by Bruno Ganz and Teresa Madruga!
