Deep inside Portuguese soul
2 September 2008 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Just forget all about globalization. Portugal and Portuguese movies are unique: you can see it in "Aquele querido mês de Agosto" (That dearest August month). In August those who live in big towns and the emigrants come back to their little villages, some foreigners appear as well and all this people join together with the (polyglote) locals. Little familiar bands play and sing for others to dance in the summer festivals and this popular songs become lovely when sang by the wonderful leading role actress. This film includes it's "making of" and plays with the idea of "how a Portuguese movie is made". It is funny, it is poignant, it is innocent and it is intelligent just like anyone. In this movie you can find all except bad taste. And Portuguese people can feel proud of being Portuguese!
