The Strange Case Of Angelica Reviews

May 15, 2011
The Strange Case of Angelica is indeed strange and unsettling. What it isn't is compelling or satisfying.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

An uneven but intriguing piece of whimsy that veers from powerfully symbolic cinematography into self parody.

"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.

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.
