  • José Neves's rating of the film Retalhos da Vida de um Médico

    If one compares the current television series with this will notice the huge difference between a formulaic compression and the breathing possibilities for a format that this series introduced and wasn't repeated. As if television was inspired by the constructed naturalism of Reis/Cordeiro and some César Monteiro's and despite the popular primacy and a theatrical academicism, still left the window open to the world.
