A surprisingly good film
1 February 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is more about the futility of colonialism than it is about the disintegrating relationship between Evita and Luis. The relationship is a way for the viewer to personalise the struggle for independence: the newly-married couple are torn apart because they see the war from opposite sides.

And this is why the film works so well, because the viewer focuses on the micro, love gone cold, and clearly understands that this is because of the bigger issues that surround the young couple.

Margarida Cardoso surprises directing her first feature-length movie. Although two hours, not one shot is wasted nor one scene drags, and the screenplay never betrays that 'The Murmuring Coast' is condensed from a novel. The ending is delightful: confusing and yet clear.

It is a movie that anyone who enjoys fine characterisation will gain a lot out of.
