  1. Joao Domingues's rating of the film José & Pilar

    Mendes decides not only to provide us with the voyeuristic experience one is usually after in a biopic film, but he also gives us an "absurdist" POV, remaining faithful to Saramago's own outlook on life. He intertwines the author's ornamental persona and the endless "reheated soup" of press events , with simple dry and honest moments of his personal life and if at times it may feel repetitive, it works nevertheless.

  3. Marta Vicente's rating of the film José & Pilar

    Afinal, a nossa existência é ainda mais insignificante do que pensávamos. No entanto, é, talvez, graças a isso que a obra de Saramago existe. E felizmente que assim é.

  4. Diogo Moreira's rating of the film José & Pilar

    Arrebatador numa coexistência de cruel e belo. Tocante no sentido mais primordial do amor.

  5. Mariana Galvão's rating of the film José & Pilar

  6. Bruna de Moura's rating of the film José & Pilar

  7. Robert Burdock's rating of the film José & Pilar

    I love the tenderness of relationship that this documentary reveals between José and his wife, Pilar. It's a thing of absolute beauty (the relationship, and the documentary).

  8. Hoshyar's rating of the film José & Pilar

    Um documentário extremamente bem conseguido, de uma incrível beleza cinematográfica e presença claramente notória de José Saramago, conseguida, a meu ver, por uma boa realização de Miguel G. Mendes. O título é notável: "José e Pilar", não se trata de uma história apenas sobre José Saramago, mas da sua cumplicidade, do seu pilar e esposa: Pilar del Rio.

  9. Silvoieski's rating of the film José & Pilar

    I really love Saramago, probably it is my favourite portuguese author and he is such an interesting human being! I really enjoyed seeing this documentary, showing to the viewers the true meaning of that great and well-known sentence: "Behind every great man there is a great woman." And Pilar is such a grear woman!

  14. bernardovazdecastro's rating of the film José & Pilar

    People normally tends mixing up the film quality and the story quality and in these case, the result its quite clear. For one hand you have the personal and touching Saramgo's universe and for the other hand you have an absent cinema quality. Miguel Mendes made the whole film wishing that story hides is personal failure as a director, because having so many good material he made another boring, linear film.

    Lindo, tocante, como o amor deve ser...

    Tão bom, tão bom. "Se tivesse morrido antes de conhecer a Pilar, tinha morrido mais velho do que aquilo que sou". ♡

    Irrita-me sobejamente imaginar chegar o fim e eu sem sentir nada remotamente parecido.
