António Lopes Ribeiro
A patriotic film and deserved tribute to an exemplary poet.
In this film, directed by Leitão de Barros, we see and remember the adventurous life of Luís de Camoes. Soldier, poet, adventurer, he won the hearts of the ladies of the Portuguese court, traveled the world, stayed in the East, in India and China and ended his life as a poor man who had no money even for a bed where he could die . His name, however, lives in the heart of the Portuguese and the world, as he wrote one of the greatest and most brilliant epic poetry books made today: "The Lusíadas". A film with Antonio Vilar in the lead role.
Camões is remembered as the greatest Portuguese poet of all time, and one of the greatest literary names in Portuguese. His life alone is worth a book or a movie, and it happened in this film, which is a patriotic work and a well-deserved honor. This film, made to exalt Camões and the Portuguese nationalist spirit, is a journey into the past of the country, which was already the richest and most advanced in the world, and the life of one of his most famous historical figures.
