    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.

  8. 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 .

  9. 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

  11. Jim Fear's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

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

  12. apollonouta's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

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

  14. JVG'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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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)

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

  18. 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.

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

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

  20. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Some films present ‘slices’ of life, others recreate it fastidiously as exquisite platonic solids that leaves one wondering about their perplexing connection to fact. The question is more burning with some films than others and it’s not a new one - there was a time in Renaissance when the unsettling beauty of found Ancient sculpture was seen as too much to assign to human hand alone, so nature was literally thought

  21. Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Oliveira's tragic romantic epic is a film of great emotion and melancholy, and yet Oliveira wisely creates a barrier between the audience and the often melodramatic events taking place on screen. In a way it's a study of male-female relationships, and the dangers of all consuming desire, as well as an analysis of how no human can ever be romantically or sexually satisfied. The images are akin to beautiful paintings.

  22. kelawer's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Otro gran cruce entre cine y literatura.

  23. filmluvr81's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    I kept thinking of the line from Adaptation: " ...and God help you if you use voice-over in your work, my friends. God help you. That's flaccid, sloppy writing. Any idiot can write a voice-over narration to explain the thoughts of a character." Voice-over is ok to an extent..but for 3 hours? That's pure laziness.

  24. Doc Block's rating of the film Abraham's Valley

    Leonor Silviera's incarnation as Flaubert's Madame Bovary is a great treat to watch.
