One of the best movies this year...
25 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Hi.

"Os Imortais", a masterpiece from Vasconcelos, places him as one of the most brilliant portuguese film directors. Rui Unas performs a nice surprise on this movie. A not-so-young all-in-one actor, is "Vitor Pratas", the last imortal. And another actor, Nicolau Breyner, plays perhaps the best cinema paper on his career.

A "must see"!
