What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film A Tailor's Maid

    The machine to make films in its most perfect and crystallized executability: exemplary actors, script perfectly constructed, "competent" and invisible directing. As the society that's portrayed, with well-behaved joy, also the film does not go beyond the traditional exemplarity. A hassle. Despite the colorful still, the film is in black and white, a beautiful cinematography by Leonida Barboni.
