  2. Material Salva+ion's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    I tried to connect with this piece considered by many one of the greatest in Portuguese cinema but all I could feel was utter boredom throughout its lengthy 3 hours. Exhausting voice over, pedantic text, lethargic pace, laughable in unintended moments and dusty overly theatrical acting except for the great Isabel Ruth which never fails to draw her characters with a masterful economy and genuine expressiveness.

  3. nyubu's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    It is as if you go for walk with an old man. He goes, step by step, deliberately, but surely, silently. No stumbles or staggers, no need to lean for him. His eyes are dazzling. Yet, the trip is a calvary for you. No idea what’s on his mind. No clue, what’s the destination. You just have accept his tempo. Thus you slow down. And that’s enough to look around with different eyes. And then it s l o w l y comes...

  5. draftnymph's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    indicting, ironic, self-reflexive, echoing bunuel

  6. João Portalegre's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

  7. petit astronaute's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    35mm. 3,7. Abrindo, o filme promete uma saborosa variação sobre Lolita. Cresce, e a contragosto chamar-se-á Bovarinha. Mais tarde com duas filhas o filme pesa um pouco, os tons escurecidos. O Douro permanece

  8. FISCHER's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    Profondément austère et rigoriste, mais troublante variation sur la "Bovary" de Gustave Flaubert. Un film à la fois incisif et sensuel... www.cinefiches.com

  9. Laura G.'s rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    "Sabe-se lá quando o coração sofre ou ganha carvão para manter o calor". A primeira vez que a minha filha se ergueu sem apoio para ver quem tocava o violino. Uma eterna saudade de um tempo que mais não volta, de um país que existe nos cantos de uma memória distante.

  10. spasmolytic's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    I think I watched this whole thing. If it's the one where she falls into the water and dies, then yeah this is the one. If not oh well.

  16. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    Bresson , alain resnais master of creating inclusive harmony at cinema&literature . This is just an imitation of their harmony which is not succesfull. I found overrated and totally boring.Boredom is not related to length or film's subject. Director's method is boring , he doesnt want to tell story with images. His technique is only voice-over .

  17. kartina obskura's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    do we think of white when we see black, of the sun when we see the moon? associations through opposites. a burning desire wrapped in austerity, breathing between cold walls of earth-brown color. "i´m nothing, i'm a swinging state of mind".it´s not boredom, it's a feeling of being beaten whatever you do. willing to recognize ancient fires in caves in modern fireworks, but left frustrated. there´s energy but it´s like

    Feel like reading a book

  19. Bernardo Rodrigues's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    "Vale Abraão é um filme que se degusta, não é um filme que se coma."

  21. daxterpt999's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

  22. LI-IX's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    Manoel de Oliveira reaches here the peak of his artistic style, showing the maturity of a cinema that belongs to the latter classical tradition. This subtle and delightful game of mirrors revolves around a flawless performance by Leonor Silveira, and constitutes one of the most elaborated —yet simple— aesthetic achievements of this unforgettable filmmaker.

  23. João Gou's rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    Um filme construído com imensa sensibilidade estética, que nos conduz para a singularidade do mundo de Ema.

  24. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film El valle de Abraham

    The narrative is often confused; the film is full of ellipses that the viewers need to fill. A great complex and very personal adaptation based on one of the finest novel of all time. Strong and nuanced performance by Leonor Silveira, excellent but difficult to grasp screenplay, beautiful cinematography, many absurdity, anachronism!!! and funny reference to Madame Bovary. (need second VHS viewing)
