Casa de Lava

Directed by Pedro Costa
Portugal, 1994
Drama

Synopsis

With a strikingly modern yet humanistic style, Costa elicits quietly declamatory performances from his remarkable cast (which joins nonactors and seasoned professionals) and creates moody, luminous tableaux to conjure an incantatory, Faulknerian earthiness.
