  1. Lukas Brown's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

  2. draftnymph's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    indicting, ironic, self-reflexive, echoing bunuel

  3. João Portalegre's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

  4. petit astronaute's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    35mm. 3,7. Abrindo, o filme promete uma saborosa variação sobre Lolita. Cresce, e a contragosto chamar-se-á Bovarinha. Mais tarde com duas filhas o filme pesa um pouco, os tons escurecidos. O Douro permanece

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Profondément austère et rigoriste, mais troublante variation sur la "Bovary" de Gustave Flaubert. Un film à la fois incisif et sensuel... www.cinefiches.com

  6. Laura G.'s rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    "Sabe-se lá quando o coração sofre ou ganha carvão para manter o calor". A primeira vez que a minha filha se ergueu sem apoio para ver quem tocava o violino. Uma eterna saudade de um tempo que mais não volta, de um país que existe nos cantos de uma memória distante.

  7. spasmolytic's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    I think I watched this whole thing. If it's the one where she falls into the water and dies, then yeah this is the one. If not oh well.

  13. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Bresson , alain resnais master of creating inclusive harmony at cinema&literature . This is just an imitation of their harmony which is not succesfull. I found overrated and totally boring.Boredom is not related to length or film's subject. Director's method is boring , he doesnt want to tell story with images. His technique is only voice-over .

  14. kartina obskura's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    do we think of white when we see black, of the sun when we see the moon? associations through opposites. a burning desire wrapped in austerity, breathing between cold walls of earth-brown color. "i´m nothing, i'm a swinging state of mind".it´s not boredom, it's a feeling of being beaten whatever you do. willing to recognize ancient fires in caves in modern fireworks, but left frustrated. there´s energy but it´s like

    Feel like reading a book

  16. lowplacelikehome's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    "Vale Abraão é um filme que se degusta, não é um filme que se coma."

  17. auhasard's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

  18. daxterpt999's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

  19. LI-IX's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Manoel de Oliveira reaches here the peak of his artistic style, showing the maturity of a cinema that belongs to the latter classical tradition. This subtle and delightful game of mirrors revolves around a flawless performance by Leonor Silveira, and constitutes one of the most elaborated —yet simple— aesthetic achievements of this unforgettable filmmaker.

  20. João Gou's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Um filme construído com imensa sensibilidade estética, que nos conduz para a singularidade do mundo de Ema.

  21. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    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)

  22. Frederico Cintra Torres's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

  23. mad.lucas's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Poetic saga about the life of a portuguese girl since her youth until the days as a mother, passing through marriage crises, extramarital affairs and an unexpected ending. Incredible scenery, extremely intelligent dialogues and beautiful costumes. Leonor Silveira was a great surprise as the ruthless Ema. Highly recomended to fans of family sagas with a touch of feminist sensitivity.

  24. Joao Pedro Amorim's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    "porque a formosura precisa de ter um aviso nela para salvação dos homens"
