Critic Reviews for The Portuguese Woman

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

There is something amazingly unworldly in this film: it is a challenge, certainly, and needs an investment of attention, but there is a gorgeous refinement and intelligence to it.

It often plods even during its most potentially gripping moments.

Each shot with its carefully arranged colors and props, resemble renaissance paintings. Radical in its approach, subtle in its messages, sublime in its presentation, A Portuguesa is a stunning film about a woman's world full of life.

Through her impeccably crafted historical dramas, Azevedo Gomes forces us to come face-to-face with the realization that certain forms of oppression are still alive and well.

Confirming herself as the most solid heir of Oliveira, Azevedo loses, however, something along the way: the subjectivity of the male character. [Full Review in Spanish]
