Critics reviews

As a story, the movie remains determinedly slight, and at times the whimsical reminders of Topper (one of Driver’s avowed models) come too close for comfort; but the poetry of the people and place leaves a bracing aftertaste.

  • josé neves's rating of the film When Pigs Fly

    A close relative of "Rocinante", made by a filmmaker from other latitudes and socio-fictional realities, that loses when compared with the Guedes film: it never solves the realistic precept, nor even the unrealistic, with a feminist perspective of a fiction about a pair of ghosts that comes to avenge the death of one of them by domestic violence. Likable, but never finds a personal and stimulating point of view.
