A interresting view of the perception about "windows to the soul". Great direction of Joao Jardim and Walter Carvalho. Fresh.

José Saramago, Hermeto Pascoal, Wim Wenders, Evgen Bavcar, Agnčs Varda, Marjut Rimminen, which work I want to know/explore, and others give their point of view over the vision in this interesting documentary. Rather interesting, but I still miss something.

* A non-real character that could be in Janela da Alma and whom I got fascinated by is Julie Delpy“s character in Two Days in Paris, a photographer that has "small holes on the retina which condemn her to see only one part of the image". The way she shows us her vision problem is fantastic and you can, somehow, feel yourself into it.
