What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Cerromaior

    Cinematography by João Abel Aboim. With an image and a soundtrack of an atmospheric-pictorial nature, a film that search for a narrative (unlike its director previous work and not predicting the banality that will follow), but who stops in suspended places, times and looks and sustain the most prosaic understanding. Ideology and acting are embedded in this movement, writing a harmonious study of representation.
