An odd triangle
12 May 2002 | by valadasSee all my reviews

In fascist Portugal of the late sixties a rich landowner leads an idle life of hunting (animals and women), drinking and enjoying himself. He owns everything and everybody around him not only the objects, the horses, the dogs, the land and the lagoon but also the people like his servants and his own beautiful wife whom he keeps secluded inside his house like an emulator of the old feudal lords. The triangle formed by him, his wife and his manservant is an ambiguous one and the tensions produced within it end up in a tragic outcome. The visual images are splendid and the cut is solid and efficient. The music is superb. The plot is more suggested that explicitly told. In conclusion: a good movie though not a masterwork because the story has a few weak points such as the role of the narrator which is not well explained and a certain imperfection in depicting the characters
