What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Beyond the Mountains

    DVD projection. In the recent cinema made in Portugal, this is one of the most beautiful examples of a film out of rules and, above all, of local normativity. A family portrait that does not consist in a mere narcissistic illustration of a proximity but in a formal invective, images and sounds, which through its structure leads us to its essence: the structure of the Human in its vegetal organicity, that is, rooted.
