Movie Info

In this experimental work, director Manoel de Oliveira puts in a few left-hand punches at the world of commercial cinema. The story opens with a stage play in which a costumed flapper (Bulle Ogier) is working her way through her scene when she is rudely interrupted by a young man. He proceeds to declaim his grievances to the camera crew that occupies the first rows, namely de Oliveira and his technicians. This sequence is then rewound and repeated in two different, speeded-up styles. Next, some images of global disasters fill the screen and it is on to the second major episode. In this segment, a disfigured Job (Luis Miguel Cintra, the disgruntled man of the first segment) proclaims his woes to his wife (Ogier again), woes that are easily interpreted as exactly those of the serious cineaste in a commercial world. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
