Some of the stories are genuinely affecting. But Gomes' arcane storytelling style and frequent use of absurdity will require a good deal of patience from filmgoers.
Gomes plays with the traditions of the past and the tangible facts of the presents, hoping for a brighter future for his homeland.
Arabian Nights locks ordinary struggles and scrubby Portuguese country sides into Byzantine framing devices, faithful to the credo that any story can be interesting if it's told in an interesting way.
The stories have an almost dreamlike sweep and imaginative energy, and the film never exhausts that exuberance.
All told, the trilogy plays like a cry of frustration from a filmmaker who loves the people at the bottom and loathes the people at the top.
A colorful interpretation of the Portuguese crisis seen through a fantasy lens. [Full review in Spanish]
The most self reflective film in the trilogy. [Full review in Spanish]
If this was Scheherazade's final story, it would have been unlikely to stave off her execution.
A rambling odyssey through austerity-hit Portugal via Baghdad in the age of antiquity.
Rules dont mean much to Portuguese auteur Miguel Gomes and he concludes his masterly triptych by confounding expectations ...
What a delicate, elegant marvel these movies have been.
A glowing lovesong to Portugal performed by a man who has mastered a range of exotic instruments.
Gomes relies too much now on a lot of text written on the screen, to the point that he ends up preventing us from developing a deeper connection with the characters, but despite that this is a great film that shows us the beauty and poetry of the everyday life of those common people.
