Ratings & Reviews

  1. afuchs's rating of the film Party

    Rather incoherent but pleasurable, the acting and the beauty.

  2. jack's rating of the film Party

  3. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Party

    Not but nearly luminous, Party lacks moment, perhaps by design. We find each of its four revelers slack and asleep within his or her sclerotic assumptions, threatening but failing to break with them, before retreating, like the film, back into easy ironies.

  4. José Neves's rating of the film Party

    Cinematography by Renato Berta.

  5. João Eça's rating of the film Party

    Theatre, as always in Oliveira, is bigger than life: two couples engage in a game of seduction that lasts five years and in which everyone included seems to play a role that, in the end, goes nowhere. Life destroys theatre, and the two couples resign their own fiction. Oliveira, master of perversity, gives Love no chances of winning over the superfluous lives of his characters. Even rain is stronger than passion.
