Um Filme Falado

Manoel de Oliveira Francia, 2003

Kevin's rating of the film A Talking Picture

I read all of the reviews after watching this film in 2015. Anyone familiar with World Cinema knows the title is almost pejorative. It does not matter the point of view, the form rules the film. Today we know many films that end this way, a normal story, we want it to be normal, ends tragically. Like the news about the German plane crashing in the French Alps, normal stories end... I will miss Oliveira.
