Found Memories2011

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.8
Every morning, Madalena makes bread for Antonio's old coffee shop. Every day, she crosses the railways where no trains have passed for years; she cleans up the gate of the locked cemetery, and listens to the priest's sermon before sharing lunch with the other old villagers. Clinging to the image of her dead husband and living in her memories, Madalena is awakened by the arrival of Rita, a young photographer who is arriving in the ghost village of Jotuomba, where time seems to have stopped. A deep relationship is forged between the two women, which gradually builds to have a profound effect on both of their lives, as well as the rest of the villagers.

I fell in love with the photographic collection in this film and the cinematography. The essence of the town and the characters at peace resonated through the momentum of the film. I felt the ending was not surprising and could of been developed more to add up with the young woman's hesitance of wanting to remain in the town. I really loved this film, made me feel extremely at ease and peaceful with its play of life, death and youth.

love it a beautiful film really poetic_Rita is a dream & her photos are all wonderful_she brings life & love to this village_it's all a visual gem_really slow and studied_so much magic in time

I've always admired simplicity, and with it, comes beauty, both permanent in this great film. Images come to us like pieces of art, to be contemplated. It might be because of my recent aversion to noisy cities and places, that I like this kind of life praised in this movie: slow, tranquil, peaceful, shared with nice persons in a forgotten village....Rita wins my senses from the very first scene, very beautiful and gracious indeed, and I felt a little jealous, when the old "prieto", with all due respect, turns the lantern off, in one of those weird drinking nights, and my imagination went wild.... More of these, please, Mrs. Murat.

Brilliant cinematography. Poignant storytelling.
