Critic Reviews for The Portuguese Woman
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.
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]
