O Gebo e a Sombra
France, Portugal | 2012 | Manoel de Oliveira
The most recent feature from 105-year-old Portuguese master Manoel de Oliveira features a top-notch cast of European art-film stars (Michel Lonsdale, Claudia Cardinale, Jeanne Moreau) and Oliveira regulars (Leonor Silveira, Luís Miguel Cintra, Ricardo Trépa). Based on a play by Raul Brandão, the movie is a claustrophobic drama, set during the late 19th century, in which an elderly couple anxiously awaits the return of their elusive, long-absent son, who’s been seen in town. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see an important movie that’s undistributed in the U.S. “An exquisite yet anguished spectacle, a grand piece of cinematic chamber music for a cast of mighty soloists.” –The New Yorker.
