Movie Info

Like every morning, Madalena makes bread for Antonio's old coffee shop. Like every day, she crosses the railways where no trains have passed for years; she cleans up the gate of the locked cemetery, and listens to the priest's sermon before sharing lunch with the other old villagers. Clinging to the image of her dead husband and living in her memories, Madalena is awakened by the arrival of Rita, a young photographer who is arriving in the ghost village of Jotuomba, where time seems to have stopped. A deep relationship is forged between the two women, which gradually builds to have a profound effect on both of their lives, as well as the rest of the villagers. -- (C) Film Movement

Critic Reviews for Historias que so existem quando lembradas (Found Memories)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

The drama in "Found Memories" is subdued, sometimes almost invisible, but it moves with quiet assurance toward a startling conclusion.

May 31, 2012 | Rating: 4/5

The feeling of twilight permeates Found Memories, which doesn't feel so much like a tale of discovery as it does a eulogy.

Initially treated like the parasite she appears to be, over the course of this crisp, gracefully inflected meditation on time's passage, Rita develops the interest in her subjects that turns an image into more than stolen light.

Brazilian filmmaker Júlia Murat's first narrative feature is a mesmerizing, slow-build marvel.

A pic immersed in the passage of time.

If a supernatural intepretation is correct, is the village's fate melancholy or enviable? Is an eternity of old age pleasant or pointless?

Audience Reviews for Historias que so existem quando lembradas (Found Memories)

A contemplative work of intense narrative and visual poetry, using a simple yet strongly resonant story to raise delicate musings about the transience of life and the emotional power of our memories - how we perceive them and their importance as time passes and we age.
