Vale Abraão

Manoel de Oliveira Portugal, 1993

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

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