A tantalizing mix of documentary, fiction and everything in between, Miguel Gomes’ multi-award-winning love song to rural Portugal is an intoxicating blend of visuals, sound and music. Gorgeously photographed it set one’s eyes ablaze and toes tapping, but Gomes goes further to work the brain as a narrative slowly, sneakily emerges out of the (seeming) documentary melody-making.
Summoning up memories of French film-makers such as Eric Rohmer and documentarist Nicolas Philibert and in its deliberate drift from fiction into fact, echoes of Pedro Costa and Manoel de Oliviera, the film follows a self-created, evolutionary path to become something wholly individual and unique.
