O Frágil Som do Meu Motor

Leonardo António Portugal, 2012

J. R.'s rating of the film My Engine's Fragile Sound

This movie easily infatuates you and for that, I wish I could have appreciated this more. The whispering fetus, the poetry, the tone, and the open wounds are strong traits; yet I found some character's motivations to be vague and the revelation of the killer is dull. If the beginning is a crude and violent blow that early desensitizes you for the eerie core of the story, the final moments simply rip your heart apart.
