Movie Info

An adaptation of a 1923 play by Raul Brandão, Portuguese master Manoel de Oliveira's latest feature film gathers an All-Star team of European acting legends - including Claudia Cardinale, Jeanne Moreau, and Michael Lonsdale. Oliveira is unequalled among living filmmakers for his devotion to the theater, and for his ability to honor the theatricality of the texts he adapts while still creating works that are highly cinematic and profoundly modern. GEBO AND THE SHADOW is a highly-focused, deeply melancholy demonstration of his art.(c) Anthology

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9)

  • An intriguing minor composition by a shrewd and skillful master of the art.

    May 27, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Gebo and the Shadow is a film about concrete, hard, and material things, as well as one about illusions. Its dramatic elements are simple.

    May 27, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Old-school charm and expert performances elevate a somewhat creaky theatrical adaptation by the tireless centenarian Manoel de Oliveira.

    May 27, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The devastating yet logical closing scene is delicious in its poetic symmetry and irony.

  • An exquisite yet anguished spectacle, a grand piece of cinematic chamber music for a cast of mighty soloists.

    February 4, 2013 | Full Review…
  • De Oliveira concocts striking images in very confined spaces, leaving us with a film that should feel cramped and claustrophobic but instead feels consistently vibrant and alive.
