What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Passagem ou A Meio Caminho

    Before following his practice of staging and direction of actors with Artistas Unidos to his cinema, which in my opinion impoverished it, Silva Melo in his first two films made an urban chronic of the intellectual generation who, around age 20, was "caught" by the revolution of April 25. To escape an alleged realism, the film gives us notes of (on) literature, splendours of sound and pictural serene beauty.
