Look! It's a Manoel de Oliveira movie! Oh yeah! It's boring as hell!
20 August 2011 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This movie is bad in every single aspect. Actors, direction, script... Many people think that this is a good film... for what? For the director. yeah yeah good... Oliveira is 103 years old, so for that he is the best director in the world. The Portuguese cinema is not this crap films... If you want to see Portuguese movies, you have two options: first: you are mad and you have to go to the doctor, or second, watch the old Portuguese movies. At least, they are enjoyable, happy... this film, my God, it's the worst movie I have seen until today! If you like cinema, the real cinema, that the actors, the director, the script are good and the movie is enjoyable, don't watch this. It's a complete waste of time.
