A notable Portuguese Film
27 June 2006 | by eugenio_lisboaSee all my reviews

Not too many years ago, during a visit in New York, I had the opportunity to see a short film of then student George Felner. The film surprised me for its freshness, for its obvious difference, with a huge influence to the movies years (best movie years) of the silent comedies like Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd; so I admitted I had expectations. When this feature film came out, with George's name on the poster, I had to see it. I'd start by saying that the film is surprising, with the amusing performance of the actors, George Felner, Diogo Infante and Adelaide de Sousa. Anyone would love to meet a character like Chaplin or Buster Keaton in real life, even better if he was in black and white (which must have required quite a lot of work with special effects); this film is exactly that. The result is a film I recommend to all without exception, because like good comedies, it manages to give us a difficult balance between laughter and crying, between its brutality and innocence. Innocence, because lets not forget in the old films, it was permitted to kiss the horse and not the girl. Mano is a very rich film, but also a film that is fun, and lets not forget, that doesn't just make us smile, but really laugh.
