The urban concept is understood as those relations established by inhabitants with both their territory and other people who also live in such a territory. In cinema, urban concept is achieved when the city (scenario) in which story has been narrated is more than a backdrop where interaction among characters allows organizing the story. “La Vendedora de Rosas” shows a city as the characters’ territory (the streets) where they interact with other characters, where they work, and even where they sleep. In “La Estrategia del Caracol” the story goes around a scenario: Uribe’s House, which was changed during the movie while characters try to defend it as their territory.
