Storyline

Parque Mayer was the park off all the emotions and amusements in the 1930' s. Under the dictatorship of Oliveira Salazar and his police, many people came to have fun in its theaters attending the portuguese kind of play called "revista". A writer called Mario Pintor (paintor) is writing a play in which a new actress (Deolinda) will star as the main role, while an already famous actor named Eduardo tries to seduce this recent arrival. This is the late movie of António Pedro Vasconcelos, a well known portuguese director. Written by Miguel Santos

LOVED IT!! :)
19 December 2018 | by mickenevesrosadoSee all my reviews

I'm not a film critic, but I love watching movies, and I really like to try to keep an eye on what the Portuguese cinema has to offer once in a while. Maybe I'm just unlucky regarding the portuguese movies I get to watch, but I have to admit I'm usually not the biggest fan of those I see... Two blatant examples of that are "Capitão Falcão" and "Linhas de Sangue"... I hated both :) ...

But here the painting is different: I have the habit of giving each film a 1-to-5 score, which I keep on a notepad, and last tuesday (September 3rd), after the preview screening held at the UCI cinemas in Lisbon, I gave my first "5" ever (special reference here to "La Cage Dorée", also a "5", but only partially portuguese)... And how pleased was I to give that score :)...

I loved the beauty, the great spirit, the way it revisited the past, the sometimes blatant humour, as well as the other times very well camouflaged one, and I absolutely loved the so well printed emotion in such a genuine work...

CONGRATULATIONS!!
