What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Twin Flames

    This film is a distant relative of the amazing "Flammes" by Adolfo Arrieta, with its suggestion of secrecy, but without the same intensity of perversion. A theatrical game that undermines and erodes the rules of television naturalism. That's why it's not a coincidence that the magnificent Leonor Silveira is in the film, one of the few times that she done it outside Oliveira cinema. A film too long ignored.
