  1. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    É nestas coisas que o Gomes faz magia. Sinto isto tudo,mesmo o que não vivi. Natais intemporais de uma infância ideal,coletiva ou não. O brincar com o presépio, os brinquedos de plástico (os peixinhos!) o maravilhar dos padrões dos embrulhos (coisa de putos introspectivos) as músicas do 8bit e dos instrumentos de brincar(O Für Elise!) Marcha marcha cabaçinha marcha marcha cabação. Que maravilha de curta <3

    alegoria de uma promessa europeia

  4. Jason's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Like Christmas itself, A Christmas Inventory is about the gaze directed down towards and out from inside childhood. A glorious, elemental double-movement. This li'l gem is lovingly handcrafted. Watching it is like sitting together (even if alone) before the hearth.

  5. Amanda's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    An oddity made by extracts of memory. It would save your own Christmas

  6. Ricardo Corona M's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Fiel retrato de como pasan las familias la Nochebuena, excelentes los close-ups de las figuras del nacimiento.

  7. Juan Pablornz's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Es el Miguel Gomes inicial, el de antes de Cántico de todos los seres (2006) o el más depurado de Aquel querido mes de agosto (2008) o el notabilísimo de Tabú (2012). Un cortometraje que sin ser clave en su trayectoria marca una escalón en su proceso creativo.

  8. SueRay's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

  9. Eric Adkins's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    This is a refreshing, great short. It's all about the holiday tradition of getting together, interacting with generations, having goofy fun, testing the establishment, including meeting a new spirit... Who does poo poo like everyone else.

  10. Jack Duckworth's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    everything family Christmases were when you were a kid.

  11. barebeauty's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Joyous, nostalgic-- this film brought up in me memories I had long forgotton, specifically, playing hide and seek in the dark in the closing hours of Christmas Eve. There is a tracking sequence in this film that is nearly unforgettable, completely magical.

  12. Seen_Your_Video's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    An interesting and amusing watch wholly thanks to the straight-up portrayal of a family on Christmas day, plus an array of beautifully shot sequences with Christmas figurines and sets.

  13. gaafgaaf's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Por si quedaba alguna duda de que Miguel Gomes es el director más adorable trabajando actualmente. CHRISTMAS INVENTORY juega con la memoria, muy posiblemente la propia, a través del juego con la naturalidad documental y el, bueno, juego literal con los elementos del nacimiento y la navidad, figuras y juguetes, para recrear una reunión con la que todos podemos simpatizar e identificarnos.

  14. Davide's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    A perfect memory coma after a xmas boozy night. Great nativity diorama. Great music.

  15. Charlie's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    No soy alguien a quien le guste mucho la navidad, quizá por eso no le encontré sentido a este cortometraje.

  16. globalposse@hotmail.com's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Jack in the box surprise of a movie! Lego wonderland fantasy with a wistful soundtrack that will take you back to kiddy land. Simple memories of the intrigues and innocence of chlldhood play during the annual fete.

  17. Mike's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    An alright short film that, if anything else, provides an accurate representation of what the experience of Christmas is like. What's nice about this film is the camera never moves and the scenes are allowed to unfold in front of us. This sacrifices some intimacy for authenticity and it totally works. Again, it's not so much about story, which is in contrast to other holiday films and which may turn off some viewers.

  19. Moona's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Maher Shalal Hash Baz's music <3

  20. msmichel's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Early short from Gomes that is nothing more than a Christmas trifle that feels more like a home movie than anything else.

  21. Juurakkotukka's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    Little Martine is like a happy version of Ana Torrent.

  22. Henrique Verkündigung's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    it reminds me of my childhood family reunions, very delicate and simple.

  23. petit astronaute's rating of the film A Christmas Inventory

    it's a wonderful short. Miguel Gomes, always on the frontier between documentary and fiction, blending the two 'genres'; or like in Cântico das Criaturas (2006), segmenting the short in three parts: first and third almost documentaries, but nevertheless manipulating the footage, and the 2nd part, fictional nucleus and amazing studio feature that reminds us of some latest Resnais (Smoking/ No smoking).
