Critics reviews

It seems entirely fitting that I’m Going Home—a beautiful feature by Manoel de Oliveira -should open in Chicago just after September 11. This French film by a Portuguese master who occasionally makes films in France is the kind of quiet masterpiece that fully registers only after you’ve seen it-a profound meditation on bereavement and other kinds of loss as well as on everyday life and things right under our noses that we accept as “other,” including old age and art and different cultures.
