  1. Kamil's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    I would rate it higher, but I'm not able to tolerate this type of cheesy, harvest-time Casio-synth music. And this movie was full of it. Otherwise, quite immersive, interesting story telling

  2. Pierre.F's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    Un film documentaire au style buissonnier.

  3. -REM-'s rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

  4. Gisèle Kérosène's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

  5. EdieEmm's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    Like those delightfully playful films in which Fellini plays himself. Add Rohmer's whimsy; the irreverence of the surrealists; enough deadpan vignettes (and marching bands!) to put Roy Andersson to shame (thankfully minus his misanthropy), and you have something approximating that famous description of an elephant by a group of blind men when it comes to summing up Gomes' singular style/vision. +1 for the ending. 4.5

  6. fearraigh's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    Didn't know what to expect from this film when I saw it on cinema release. It's a wonderfully languid treat, making you pine for holidays you can never take.

  7. Diogo Pires's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    Esta espécie de épico de aldeia de Gomes traz, no final das contas, um belo ensaio sobre o que é realidade no cinema, o que há de documental nesta arte. A divisão narrativa, embora não intencionada, acaba por marcar um ponto importante. "In one part the actors are making the mise en scène, and in the other part you [Gomes] are. " Fica um Portugal filmado com ternura, muito nosso. [revi em 2017]

  8. Lance L O T's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    A great depiction of life in the summer in Portugal, it speaks true of a mental construct in Portugal which is 'the village' nobody is from the big cities or at least most of us claims not to be and finds roots in these places to live these lives of love, corny songs and unknowingly genuine characters who are not aware of themselves. The introduction of the director and the device blend perfectly with fiction..

  10. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    I was happy to find that the film was as intriguing as its wonderful title. Looking forward to Arabian Nights!

  11. JoãoMoura's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    A meu ver é a pior obra de Miguel Gomes até agora, é um bom realizador mas este filme fica muito aquém.

  12. Nacnud Schmalz's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    Ah, August... Portugal... the wine, and sad, sappy songs -- the chimera of cinema... what DID happen with the people? I'm dense.

  13. Joe Curtin's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    a really odd movie, but for some reason i liked it.

  14. David R Williams's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    Watching this I felt as if I had been dropped into a foreign land with no knowledge of where I was or its people and their customs. I observe fascinated and bewildered. Images pull me in and along. I want to go back.

  15. MarcusArcus's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    3.5. A better effort than Gomes' first film. Highly ambitious, this rumination on tradition and the way it binds history to repeating itself (the director aptly transmitting that it could be used in its' favor) ultimately falls short. The concept is so over-stuffed and aspiring that Gomes loses grasp of the movie. Which makes sense, seeing that that actually happened in real life. Touche, mister Gomes.

  16. suede's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    When I finally saw this last week, I first suspected it was merely a Portugal doc. Way too long. Perhaps fully appreciable only by natives. Next, I thought: I get it—Gomes is a humorist. Then, seamlessly, an endearingly realist film within the film began to unfold... || Contains a few great scenes. Interesting play w. levels: doc, fiction film, (fictional) making-of. Might be excellent, if cut to max. 90 min.* 5.5/10

  17. Bernardo Anderson's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    A very interesting look into Portuguese culture. Some of the music would fit right into Leningrad Cowboys go America.

  20. Vicky Ng's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    At the beginning of the film, the storyline seem all over the place and hard to connect the dot. Almost an hour later, the story make much more sense and everything is in line. I like the way that it's half documentary and half drama

  22. somerseson's rating of the film Our Beloved Month of August

    I would have really enjoyed this film if the music was more interesting than it was. The performance of music was a major part of this film, but the musicians weren't good enough to fill two and a half hours. Apart from that... Meh.
