Porto of My Childhood

Porto da Minha Infância

Diretto da Manoel de Oliveira
Portogallo, 2001

This astonishingly little seen documentary about Portugal’s second largest city, Porto, is a tribute by Manoel de Oliveira to the city of his childhood, where the director masterly interweaves fact and fiction together.

Porto of My Childhood Diretto da Manoel de Oliveira


The film is built around memories: the house where Oliveira was born (seen as an eerie ruin), distant sense-impressions (the sound of horses at night), and dramatic reconstructions in which the young Manoel is played by the director’s grandsons Jorge and Ricardo Trepa. These vivid re-enactments include a visit to a play, the director himself cheerfully donning wig and moustache to appear as a stage burglar.
