Oliveira at his "best"
23 July 2004 | by (Albufeira, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Palavra e Utopia? what can i say?..it's Oliveira as His Best, static, no action, boring, all of that multiplied by 10000.

I can only think of two good films by Oliveira; "Anikí-Bobó"a, one of the best films made in the 40's in europe, and i think, the best in Portugal ever,and(if you really are a Oliveira fan) "Vale Abraão" Starring like in all the Oliveira's films in the last 15 years the fantastic Leonor Silveira.

I, like most of the portuguese population can't understand any logical reason for the success Olíveira's films have, amongst the cinema community(movie makers, festival organizers, critics etc), nor any reason for the production of his films, to be subsidized by the government(all of them), there are dozens of movie makers in portugual that have to wait years to get a film done, some of them, are brilliant, Oliveira, gets all the help, and honestly, he does not deserve any.
