open mind movie
28 June 2007 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I loved it because it's about the spirit, it's beautiful and never boring. We like to believe we live in a very open-minded time but Teresa, today, would probably be a psychiatric patient. This film is not a biography, and it's not really a story that is being told. This is about spirit. Teresa is dealing with the spirit through her life and this is strange enough when we must believe in matter and stories are about events chained in a logical way to look real. Real and unreal are no important matters here. The same spirit can divide or not divide concepts as life and death. Teresa knows the whole. Watching this movie can really open our mind.
