Como Fernando Pessoa Salvou Portugal

Eugène Green পর্তুগাল, 2018

dionysus67's rating of the film How Fernando Pessoa Saved Portugal

More interesting in bringing to the fore the linguistic puns that led to a double deconstruction of the advertising campaign and thus in maintaining in non-militant fashion the hiatus between poetry and advertising, Green's colorful film suffers from a rather vacuous formalism (the frontal close-ups do not even generate the intnded expressionless sarcasm) and a belated pleasure unduly reserved in the fine final shot.
