I can appreciate non-narrative film & the experimental, but this particular film is so swamped in pretension that to apply meaning to the any of the images in this completely pointless excuse of a movie would give it's director more credit than deserved. If it stopped after the beautiful opening scene with the two lovers in the desert it could have been an ok short, but what follows is duller than watching paint dry
Quite amazing debut feature from Portabella that has little need for dialogue concentrating instead on the power of imagery, everyday moments and fleeting glimpses of society. Images are mostly b&w and are bold with a mix of the everyday, the avant garde and the surreal. Brossa and Portabella's script may seem disjointed or experimental but stay the course and one is well rewarded.
