Boring Portuguese women look at war, stupid army men and senseless killings
4 August 2008 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

A costa do murmurios (The Murmuring Coast) is a striking debut film by Portuguese director Margarida Cardoso who also happens to be an acclaimed director of many award winning documentary films.Her film is based on an eponymous novel written by acclaimed Portuguese writer Lidia Jorge in 1989.This film is her homage to her childhood days which were spent in a war torn Mozambique.In this film,Cardoso shows us lives of Portuguese soldiers who are waging war against freedom fighters and rebels.They are shown as brutes who would not mind killing innocent civilians.On the one hand it is quite true that "A Costa Do Murmurios" is a film about native people fighting for their independence,on the other hand,it can also be said that it appears more as a film about lonely Portuguese women,their inner worlds,their hollow existences and their fights for their own independence.Beatriz Batarda plays a memorable role of a silly woman who is shielding her idiotic husband.Most of the film is shown through her perspective which is the silent cry of an innocent woman against the ghastly horrors of a senseless war.
