Movie Info

Adapted from author Agustina Bessa-Luis' novel The Soul of the Righ, writer/director Manoel de Oliveira's Magic Mirror travels deep into the restless psyche of a well-to-do woman who longs to experience a divine vision. Previously imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Luciano (Ricardo Trepa) emerges into the real world in desperate need of a sense of direction. Luciano is haunted by the death of his sister Camila, though he does his best to stay distracted from family ghosts by going to work

A droll comedy about the impossibility of shaking the burdens of your dreams and obligations.

Based on a novel by Augustina Bessa- Luís, a frequent de Oliveira collaborator, the film is perversely textual, an endlessly talking picture seemingly addressed to no one but itself.

Oliveira's touch is sure and the result is an atmospheric piece of work that lingers in the mind.

Shows little interest in making sense.

If you have never loved de Oliveira, this film will be a hard sell, even though it is more lyrical than most of his previous work.
