Vale Abraão

Manoel de Oliveira Portugal, 1993

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)
