challenging film
9 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this is one unique film form Portuguese director Pedro Costa.it's a film that definitely requires more than one viewing in order to fully understand it.i liked it,but there's no doubt it's challenging.however,that just makes the experience more rewarding once we do comprehend what it is we have witnessed.as for this movie,though i didn't completely grasp the meaning of it all,i did like the look and the atmosphere of it.colours were used to very good effect.dialogue is used very sparingly here,and that works in the film's favour as well.keep in mind going in,this a movie that will challenge you and make you use your mind.if you're not wiling to be engaged mentally,this isn't your film.
