What are people saying?

  • Diogo Pires's rating of the film The Wolf's Lair

    Mourão tem, indubitavelmente, talento e mérito em juntar as peças do seu arquivo, seja ele de memória ou de outro suporte qualquer, com a sua vida presente e a necessidade de procurar saber mais sobre a sua família. A isto juntam-se planos curiosos de ruas ou de edifícios que provam a sua qualidade. No entanto, o filme peca pelo tom narrativo monótono que não o deixa ambicionar mais que o familiar e local.
