An example
13 June 2001 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

An example of good works can be made with small means. In conversations with the director, I have learned that this movie was made with the smallest means available, by the smallest crew available, but gave the world an unique vision. It was a time of change in portuguese cinema, and this one started that time. It was for me a great honor to be able to speak with the man that made it possible, and it was also a true inspiration for times to come. This movie is a great example of how great movies can be made with little money, but great effort. For that, everyone involved in its making are to be commended by the revolution they caused. >
