  • José Neves's rating of the film Oxalá

    35mm, rewatched. A beautiful film about April revolution (which now feels like its epitaph),that searches the romanesque that characterized Truffaut's Antoine Doinel, surpassing the references with a personal discourse that sometimes touches unexpected texts like Oliveira's, in the nocturnal scene with Laura Soveral's character, and Agustina Bessa-Luís, through the aphorisms in off and by the unfortunate bourgeoisie.
