Doomed Love

Dir. Manoel de Oliveira (1978). De Oliveira turned to minimalist costume drama in the mid ‘70s—straightforward, literal-minded adaptations of unpromising literary material. Fanatically reproducing every quirky narrative rhythms and expedient ellipsis in the novel on which it’s based, Doomed Love is a masterpiece of modernist cinema.
