The Strange Case Of Angelica Reviews

Film Comment Magazine

Oliveira's first use of 21st-century digital technology paradoxically marks a return to the origins of cinema with the special effects trembling with a handcrafted sincerity and shimmering sense of wonder

This whimsical, ethereal tale of love and death is as light as a feather, but charming in its own way.

An old-fashioned 21st Century movie.

Some dreamlike photography and a soothing musical score are pluses but slow, draggy telling is likely to frustrate the viewer.

A quiet tale, told through a rarely moving camera and a playful, bewitching smile.

The narrative unreels with the simplicity of a silent movie; many scenes are shot from a single camera set-up with few cuts, the shadowy, stagy interiors backed by Chopin, as if it were a live piano accompaniment.

Nearly every shot in this new movie contains one glory or another.

...a whimsical fable, the meditation of a very old man looking to the past, looking towards death. It has the impact of a half smile.

May be the most accessible of the ten Oliveira films I've seen so far.

"The Strange Case of Angelica" tells its tale of love and death with a captivating mix of formality, ambiguity and offbeat humor. On the surface a simple fable, it's actually much more.

Because of his age and experience, de Oliveira brings a wider perspective to everything he shoots; if he places his camera in the middle of a street, he tries to convey the way it was decades ago, not just how it is now.

de Oliveira's film is a musical of a sort, its quietude occasionally lifted by work songs or chorales.

While it is evidently the work of an artist with great stores of wisdom and a long view of history, it also has a playful, wry quality that can only be described as youthful.

Jon Frosch

A distinctive, touchingly old-fashioned piece of work, and unmistakably one made by a director whose life has spanned eras.

Prairie Miller

The mystical when not earthy, Chaplinesque images are enchanting. In particular the artist's pursuit of his elusive muse, ecstatically locked in a wordless embrace with the beaming apparition as she takes him on a journey floating across the night sky.

We think we're in for a weighty, Hitchcockian treatise on artistic obsession; Oliveira's intentions are a bit more impish, however, though no less profound.

Probably too film school for most, this is a masterpiece by a master. A hard look at the disjunction of film and art in a ghostly setting.

A snapshot of consuming obsession and the inspiring power of art that?s like falling into a bewildering, beguiling dream.

The movie evokes what the Portuguese call saudades, or sentimental longing, but literally reincarnates melancholy as joy.
