Vacances portugaises

Pierre Kast France, 1963

josé neves's rating of the film Portuguese Vacation

35mm. The game(s) of attraction(s) and its geometrical affectation, the pleasure of a dramaturgical writing as in a Marivaux play - the dialogues are of an enormous intelligence - anticipating Rohmer's moral tales. Although some ridiculous folklore related to portuguese popular music, it's a fine example of a film related with the emerging Nouvelle Vague's modern lightness.
