The less boring Oliveira film...
18 March 2003 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Certainly a masterpiece... The old Manoel de Oliveira presented us with a fine comedy, where everything falls apart, very dark humour and questions on the human nature.

The best of Oliveira, even for those who don't like his work.
