Fantasia Lusitana

João Canijo Portugal, 2010

ig_____or's rating of the film Lusitania Illusion

A thoughtful testament to what Portugal was like during Salazar's dictatorship period, which lasted for 40 years, longer than in any other European country. Canijo did a good exercise by juxtaposing the regime's propaganda videos with the recorded testimonies of some of the foreign intellectuals that visited the country during those years.
