Um Filme Falado

Manoel de Oliveira Francia, 2003

El Biffo's rating of the film A Talking Picture

Part History lesson, part travelogue, the first part of this film is lovely if that stuff is enjoyable for you. Unfortunately, as soon as Malkovich enters this "Talking Picture" it becomes a real drag. The conversation is forced and contrived. Watch the first half if you want to see a beautifully shot travelogue. But turn it off as soon as you see Malkovich's ugly mug, that's what I think. 2 & 1/2 stars, not 3.
