  1. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film Ossos

    As personagens encontram-se numa modorra tal, que não conseguem transmitir nada para além de desolação. Infelizmente, esse sentimento não é suficiente para dar força ao filme, que acaba por ser elevado pelas excelentes realização e imagem, que ampliam a austeridade da situação.

  2. João Martins's rating of the film Ossos

    No artificial scenes, no things that we can discard. A raw story, a struggle for survival in a place where there is no other way but create your own path of existence.

  3. Ethan's rating of the film Ossos

    Pedro Costa has a marvelous way of conveying so much emotion and intimacy with his films without using much dialogue and allowing the camera to examine and focus closely on his subjects with very little movement.

  4. João Portalegre's rating of the film Ossos

    I hate seeing such a lovingly made film have as dishonest an atmosphere as this one, but I hate the sort of ambiguity present here, so don't really take my word for anything.

  5. Patrick F.'s rating of the film Ossos

    There's a diagetic Wire song, good movie. Oh and I guess it's quietly devastating or w/e.

  6. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Ossos

  7. Aditya Watts's rating of the film Ossos

  8. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Ossos

  9. Ana Sousa's rating of the film Ossos

  10. Ricardo Pereira's rating of the film Ossos

    Ossos de Pedro Costa é sem a menor dúvida um dos, senão o melhor, filme seu. E um dos meus favoritos. Pedro Costa é um dos maiores mestres do cinema português.

  11. Lucas Granero's rating of the film Ossos

    Una respiración densa. Un desencanto total, una desesperanza constante. La primera exploración en torno a Fontahinas que realiza Pedro Costa es esta película que se siente como una piedra atada al cuello, como algo que se arrastra sin saber dónde ir. Y aunque varias de las ventanas de las casas por las que Costa mira se encuentren abiertas ni un poco de aire parece entrar aquí. De esta película no se sale facilmente.

  12. János Valuska's rating of the film Ossos

  13. sacajawèale's rating of the film Ossos

  14. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Ossos

    This is tough viewing, and while beautifully framed and shot, not particularly rewarding or memorable in the long run. It is something to be drudged through, with incredible bleakness and deprivation that will leave you drained and depressed, and not all that enlightened, in fact mostly just tired. It has a very unique look that creates a real sense of space and atmosphere, making poverty beautiful at times.

  15. dr0nestar's rating of the film Ossos

  16. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film Ossos

    Love it for it's ruthless nature, without fear to show exactly how reality leads itself. My country has beautiful and heavy tributes to cinema. Very hard-hiting

  17. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Ossos

    En un principio Costa parece apelar al ritual de la miseria basándose en el mutismo y la degradación tipo Sharunas Bartas. Más adelante, la historia se va componiendo. Su nivel de misera se eleva al de los Hermanos Dardenne, sobre oportunidades o benevolentes de paso que extienden la mano a sus personajes, mas sus propias actitudes de naturaleza miserable, les hace golpear la mano que les dió de comer. Nada más...

  18. El Biffo's rating of the film Ossos

    I have to watch this a 2nd time...

  19. Brendan's rating of the film Ossos

  20. Stevie's rating of the film Ossos

    An astonishing film. The framing of each shot is phenomenal, it could form a series of intensely bleak paintings. Costa has given a voice to a section of Portuguese society that has been neglected for too long. Beautiful.

  21. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film Ossos

    Uma pessoa com essa doença não se parece com ninguém.

  22. FAKE_001's rating of the film Ossos

    já vi o filme várias vezes. duas delas em tela. é brilhante

  23. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Ossos

    "The time is too short but never too long to reach ahead, to project the image, which will in time become a concrete dream. Another cigarette, another day, from A to B, again avoiding C, D, and E, 'cause E is where you play the blues. Avoiding a death is to win the game, to avoid relegation, the big E."

  24. F.Bieberkopf's rating of the film Ossos

    Liked it very much. Grim, dimly lit, damp, claustrobhobic setting with a pervading sense of morose. Reminded me of Sharunas Bartas, especially 'Trys dienos', even Aki Kaurismaki or the early films of Jia. Very Bressonian.
