Silvestre

Directed by João César Monteiro
Portugal, 1981
Drama

Synopsis

A bewitching combinatory adaptation of the Bluebeard tale and a 15th century Portuguese fable of a damsel who disguises herself as a knight errant, Silvestre is both radically feminist and fascinated with the dark, primal logic of the paternal order.
