A Woman's Revenge

A Vingança de uma Mulher

Directed by Rita Azevedo Gomes
Portugal, 2012
Drama, History, Biography

Synopsis

Roberto is a handsome, wealthy man of the world. He is arrogant and easily bored. Yet one evening his attention is attracted by a prostitute who turns out to be a missing noblewoman. She tells her story: a marriage without passion, an affair, a shocking murder and ultimate revenge.

Our take

From auteur Rita Azevedo Gomes comes this ghostly, elegantly-shot adaptation of the 19th century classic Les diaboliques. Featuring a thrilling performance by Rita Durão, A Woman’s Revenge echoes both Manoel de Oliveira’s late-period movies and the bold filmmaking of Eugène Green.

A Woman's Revenge Directed by Rita Azevedo Gomes

Critics reviews

Maybe A Woman’s Revenge and The Portuguese Woman are the extreme points of Azevedo Gomes’ world: Woman Vanquished and Woman Triumphant—with all the rest in-between, an ever-different mix of impressions and expressions, defeats and glories.
