TIFF REVIEW: FILM #9 "The Strange Case of Angelica"

DIRECTED BY - Manoel de Oliveira

Oh god!!!!!
This film is getting points for the fact that the director is fucking 101 years old. I saw it on this fact and what a damn mistake. I actually think the camera was moving at the directors internal bowl movements- once an hour, and only slightly.
Man this was bad, I don't know what the hell it was about. Not at all. It was slow, boring, poorly acted , bad camera work and the lost goes on.
Points granted for a beginning and end to the film, Goddard should take note.
Avoid. If you have tickets, trade them, if you were on the fence. Jump off it.
