josé neves's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

Probably only in some Straub/Huillet films and Oliveira's "Non" a period film was so semiotically staged, where the visual signs correspond to an exposure of a way and a time, and the sound, in its largest more-than-the-visible concrete dimensionality, the fill for an engaging and wide realistic approach, however ilogic such idea may seems. Or not, see the tournament sequence and the armors sound: (im)pure realism.
