  • josé neves's rating of the film Shirin's Wedding

    rated from memory. In 1984 the Film Library organized a retrospective of this filmmaker who was important to me to consolidate a more consistent relationship with the "new German cinema" and also to discover what is still one of its strong and forgotten links, still unfairly undervalued. A bright director in her femininity but also hard in her critical and formal look, in fact much rejected by her countrymen.
