The Strange Case of Angelica


Dir. Manoel de Oliviera (2010).
As funny and peculiar as its title promises, de Oliviera’s latest last film puts his own eccentric spin on the myth of Orpheus—offering a modest, ultimately sublime meditation on the photographic essence of the motion picture medium, as glimpsed in the half-light of eternity.
