Different makes the difference
7 September 2008 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I am aware that lately some movie directors use documentary and fiction in their films. Actually, almost everybody (critics and public) mentions that in what concerns this film, but for me that is the smallest part of what is important in "Aquele querido mês de Agosto". Its splendor and beauty results, in my opinion, in the adequate way how the plot's initial idea, such as the emotional connections among father, daughter and a cousin, elements of a popular band of musicians, are worked and manipulated making them extremely appropriated to the lyrics and sounds of songs of Portuguese popular music, which illustrate, interpret and emphasize their "soul" moods. And that occurs with no prejudices - this kind of music is generally associated with popular balls, to a "superficial" music made to dance, not to think about its contents. However a blogger wrote that this film is to watch and to "read".A critic also said that Miguel Gomes is not "deaf" to the images neither "blind" to the sounds and I agree with them.Besides a high sense of humor, not very common in the Portuguese cinematography, is another of the strengths of "Aquele querido mês de Agosto". The glare of this movie remains after we leave the cinema and we dream to live again another wonderful month of August.
