  • José Neves's rating of the film Jealousy

    The potential act of fictional extravasation, ie, of a tearjerker mieux que nature, implicitly contained in its plot, it's not completely obtained because of a traditional containment in its narration, that is, its formality, although elegant and determined in a certain classical practice, it does not provide the jump into the void that its glorious final reaches (and as Buñuel would do in some of his Mexican films).
