Movie Info

An adaptation of a 1923 play by Raul Brandão, Portuguese master Manoel de Oliveira's latest feature film gathers an All-Star team of European acting legends - including Claudia Cardinale, Jeanne Moreau, and Michael Lonsdale. Oliveira is unequalled among living filmmakers for his devotion to the theater, and for his ability to honor the theatricality of the texts he adapts while still creating works that are highly cinematic and profoundly modern. GEBO AND THE SHADOW is a highly-focused, deeply melancholy demonstration of his art.(c) Anthology

Critic Reviews for Gebo and The Shadow (Gebo et l'ombre)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

'Gebo' is an elemental thudding back to earth, body and soul entombed inside a dimly lit abode.

An intriguing minor composition by a shrewd and skillful master of the art.

May 27, 2014 | Full Review…

Gebo and the Shadow is a film about concrete, hard, and material things, as well as one about illusions. Its dramatic elements are simple.

May 27, 2014 | Full Review…

Old-school charm and expert performances elevate a somewhat creaky theatrical adaptation by the tireless centenarian Manoel de Oliveira.

May 27, 2014 | Full Review…

The devastating yet logical closing scene is delicious in its poetic symmetry and irony.

May 27, 2014 | Full Review…

It defines Manoel de Oliveira's late period, during which his movies have continued to shrink in size and scope while remaining thematically expansive.
