a meeting
14 April 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

it is not an ordinary film. it is only a meeting. with Manoel de Oliveira vision about art purpose, with slices from Chagall art and. maybe, with the levels of an obsession. a film about art , love and life. raving, poetic, strange or touching, it is, like many of director movies, only a confession. and that is the key for be different. because, at first sigh, nothing is new. it could be a Gothic story adaptation, a film about mixture of dream and magic, a poem or remember about great paintings. an art movie by an immortal/legendary master who use, with precision, delicacy and inspiration known themes. in fact, it is only a touching story about common things. a poem in image who testify experience of a remarkable longevity. a film who remembers fairy tale and classic love stories. in fact, only a search. about axis of personal universe.
