  1. Francisca's rating of the film Letters from War

  2. Igor Ramos's rating of the film Letters from War

    O tom monocórdico do voice over abafa completamente qualquer sentimento que os personagens possam estar a atravessar durante a acção do filme. No meio do desespero da guerra e da angústia da saudade, praticamente tudo é dito numa ladainha em surdina e por isso, apesar de uma cinematografia estupenda, a ligação aos actores/personagens e à história sai fragilizada.

  3. Daniel Roque's rating of the film Letters from War

    Duas horas que parecem quatro com uma fotografia digna de enfiar a "picha de foder na boca de comer", porém nunca levam a orgasmo nenhum.

  4. Sara Sousa's rating of the film Letters from War

  5. Diogo Pires's rating of the film Letters from War

    Pretty good photography but lacking narrative.

  6. Isabel Arantes's rating of the film Letters from War

  7. Sara Castro's rating of the film Letters from War

  8. João Portalegre's rating of the film Letters from War

    trying to encapsulate life inside film - one that is just as confused about what it is as life is - is impossible. there's greatness in the concept. the scene in which the daughter is born is marvelous; the sex scene starts the same way, but drags on. during the rest, I mostly just wanted to sleep.

  9. Hugo Bonjour's rating of the film Letters from War

    Astonishingly beautiful, but the narrative needed a further development.

  10. Joao Francisco Pinho's rating of the film Letters from War

    O filme tem um ritmo calmo, apesar do stress que os soldados sofriam diariamente com possíveis ataques a qualquer momento, até nos seus momentos de descanso. Ao longo da obra observamos pormenores importantes da história angolana e portuguesa que marcou uma geração e as que seguiram, desde a propaganda ao retrato de Salazar, desde o álcool e tabaco em quantidade de admirar até à morte de soldados portugueses.

  11. João Martins's rating of the film Letters from War

    Good cinematography and beautifully filmed. Letters from António Lobo Antunes are an inspiration.

  12. opandadodavid's rating of the film Letters from War

    a 4ª é pelo som do amolador na cena da casa de banho

  13. petit astronaute's rating of the film Letters from War

    algo estéril na sua construcção, o filme ficou condicionado pela fidelidade às cartas de A.L. Antunes, que eram um bom pretexto para um filme sobre a guerra colonial, mas não tão interessantes enquanto material fílmico ou narrativo — são quase irrelevantes e adormecem o filme (pela super-abundância da voz-off), tal como o mau casting do protagonista (entre outros) que nunca consegue ser o escritor daquelas palavras.

  14. José Neves's rating of the film Letters from War

    There is a nice idea, sometimes fluent, of not following an illustrative current between images and the voice off, but here begins what is most failed: the reading of the letters by the main actress is usually imperceptible by a clear disability of enunciation, being difficult to understand the film's aim. In addition, there is a struggling for an aesthetization where the image is made only of/for a supposed aura.

    Honestly loved it. Great production from O Som e a Fúria and great work from the talented Ivo M. Ferreira

  18. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Letters from War

  19. Nadin's rating of the film Letters from War

    It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Visually, the film is a stunning piece, but the narrative became a bit of a drag after a while.
