pure class
27 July 2015 | by hayandySee all my reviews

This film is as much about the pure art of film making as is the storyline, The camera and static shots are true genius , and yes the pans and lack of sound track are a most refreshing change compared to 99% of the rubbish that is out there, you feel as though you are discovering Lisbon with her as well as the story line, my fav parts of the movie is where she discovers the music being sang in a small tavern, and the very end shot of the camera that was used to make the film itself, if you love pure time taken film making art with a story line watch this film x If Hollywood is your thing you will not enjoy this x
