Directed by Pedro Costa, Portugal/France, 2009, 35mm, 98 mins, color, French with English subtitles. The film is a sensorial exaltation--feast on the liquescent black and white cinematography, while Jeanne Balibar purrs her way through the recording and performing of an ensemble of musical pieces stretching from Offenbach to the synth-pop present day. Recent Luso--French Cinematic Encounters Film Series: France has a very long and intimate relationship with cinema, starting from its birth with the Lumières, extending to the poetic realism of Renoir and then to the worldwide jolt of the New Wave. Portugal, too, has a grand literary tradition and currently some of the most distinctive voices in contemporary cinema. Combined, the countries’ lineages form an interesting blend; they have birthed a new generation of contemporary filmmakers that are continually exploring and testing the boundaries of cinema.
