Oporto of My Childhood2001

  • 3.5
With the freedom of inspiration and the rigor of writing that are his trademarks, Manoel de Oliveira returns to Oporto, the city of his birth. The Oporto of this childhood is a city laden with history, a city of artists and thinkers. And, as in a spiral movement, the film moves from the ruins of the house of his birth to the city of Oporto, to the whole society. Oporto is also the city that saw the birth, after 1896, of cinema in Portugal... OPORTO OF MY CHILDHOOD is the film of a search: fragments of memories, footprints, testimonies, marks, bands of the time, song lyrics, photographs. Images of an identification that is sometimes uncertain.
