Piccoli's performance is amazing, yes, but the symbols of loss and denial and life-at-arm's-length in the film seem irritatingly transparent.

Few films seem so wise and knowing about the fact of age and the approach of the end.

Judging from the strength of this superbly enigmatic film, Oliveira himself seems far from ready to go home.

Like a precious and finely cut diamond, magnificent to behold in its sparkling beauty yet in reality it's one tough rock.

If it seems like a minor miracle that its septuagenarian star is young enough to be the nonagenarian filmmaker's son, more incredible still are the clear-eyed boldness and quiet irony with which actor and director take on life's urgent questions.

A touching drama about old age and grief with a tour de force performance by Michel Piccoli.

Oliveira trusts the intelligence of his audience...In the life of the city he suggests the ongoing life of humanity, the context in which individual mortality must be contemplated.

Gives you the steady pulse of life in a beautiful city viewed through the eyes of a character who, in spite of tragic loss and increasing decrepitude, knows in his bones that he is one of the luckiest men alive.

If that old bromide about the universal power of simple storytelling seems to bear repeating, it's because every powerful story simply told seems new in the telling.

Escaping the studio, Piccoli is warmly affecting and so is this adroitly minimalist movie.

What a role this is for Piccoli, who plays the hubristic king, the bereaved husband, the grand artist, in tones that range from thunder to whisper.
