  1. Holyphool's rating of the film The Green Years

    ...beautiful, quiet, and simplistic. I feel Olmi in this film, not as a comparison, but the way the feelings emerge from the understated emotion, and the cinematography that allows you to appreciate images that are captured from reality and bring you closer to cinema as truth....

    Revi e só queria deixar isto: <3

  4. João Portalegre's rating of the film The Green Years

    I'd have loved this when it came out. it's a great film, but it didn't age well - the dialogue is, at times, the sharpest I've ever heard, but, at others, the most awkward and pointless blab of unintentionally laughable nonsense. its sense of time and place, though, somewhat apart from the ending, is wonderful, however. it's a sort of mess, really, or maybe someone should just explain it to me.

  5. João Rocha's rating of the film The Green Years

    An amazing Portugal portrait of the 60's... the contrast between the rural and the urban is very well showed in the photography, the story and in the persona of Júlio and Ilda. The soundtrack is a masterpiece...

  6. Diogo Pires's rating of the film The Green Years

    Da primeira vez que o vi, foi o final que me despertou para o que é realmente uma grande obra de Paulo Rocha. Hoje, continuo a achar que é um dos mais brilhantes finais (não só, mas também) que o cinema português tem. Não me parece ser possível gostar do cinema deste país e não sentir um enorme carinho por Verdes Anos. 4,5 [https://mubi.com/lists/fav-portuguese-movies]

  7. Daniel Roque's rating of the film The Green Years

    Um ponto de vista honesto e deprimente sobre a mudança de vida das gentes do interior para a cidade. A relação ingénua entre Júlio e Ilda deambula entre o cómico e o trágico, acompanhada pelo som frenético da guitarra portuguesa. A cena final é das melhores que já vi no cinema português.

  8. JoaoM's rating of the film The Green Years

    Era um segredo sem ninguém para ouvir. Eram enganos e era um medo. A morte a rir dos nossos verdes anos.

  9. Nicole Richie's rating of the film The Green Years

    A cena do bailarico é flawless

  10. João Vuvu's rating of the film The Green Years

    - Que bela parelha, aqueles dois - Que faziam eles? - Ora, colheres de pau

  11. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film The Green Years

    Rocha deserves to be up there with Oliveira, Monteiro, Costa - if only for his first two films. http://theflickeringwall.blogspot.pt/2015/05/os-verdes-anos.html

  12. Steve Paixão's rating of the film The Green Years

    Paulo Rocha foi demasiado para um país como era o Portugal dos anos 60: fechado em si mesmo e com um provincianismo desmedido. Ilustra bem o contexto cultural da época mas é inevitável, não o considera um pastiche da nouvelle vague..

    Quem nunca pensou em matar por amor?

  15. ig_____or's rating of the film The Green Years

    A reflection on the problems one finds when arriving at a big city, "Os Verdes Anos" marks the beginning of a new era in the portuguese film industry: more thoughtful, sober and true to who we were. A tragic love story about the angst of trying to start a new life in Lisbon, both plot and style are a departure from what the State - at the time Portugal was under a dictatorship ruled by Salazar - supported.

  16. tiagovitoria's rating of the film The Green Years

    A perfectly placed mirror upon us, our roots and disbeliefs as portuguese individuals. Paulo Rocha is closing a chapter where cinema is ruled by institutions and not by artists. His high art cinema is subtle and honest, without romantize or even judge anyone. We are spirituals with a tradition and a past. Rocha doesn't forget it but he does not overthink on that.

  17. João Biscaia's rating of the film The Green Years

    Imaculado e sumo espécimen do Novo Cinema, com tanto de português como da mistura fina entre Nouvelle Vague e neorrealismo italiano. A Paula é do Godard, o(s olhos do) Nuno confundem-se com os vitelloni do Fellini. O fado envolve esta colagem e lima-lhe as (poucas) arestas que ficam. Deliciosa cena final a lembrar o "M". 5/5

  18. Kika Barreto's rating of the film The Green Years

    Honest and fragile, a heart-warming soundtrack that tangles beautifully with the gently flowing images. Magnificent.

  21. João Valadão's rating of the film The Green Years

    A fine example of portuguese new wave. A countryside boy's life is disturbed by the greedy influence of the "alfacinhas". Like I once read, Carlos Paredes's "Os Verdes Anos" involves the film in a poetical way. The portrait of the new apartment buildings of Lisbon matches the parisian ones in french movies.

  22. Andre A. Neves's rating of the film The Green Years

    Classic portuguese new wave. Last time I checked it could be watched on youtube.
