"...neither narrative nor documentary. It's even less a fusion of the two than a vacation from both, or any, categories." - J. Hoberman, the Village Voice
In the heart of Portugal, amid the mountains, the month of August is abuzz with people and activity. Emigrants return home, set off fireworks, fight fires, sing karaoke, hurl themselves from bridges, hunt wild boar, drink beer and make babies. OUR BELOVED MONTH OF AUGUST is an intoxicating blend of visuals, sound and music that follows the strange relationship between a father, a daughter and a nephew in a traveling pop band.

Cinema at its near finest.
cool concept well done
Movie within a movie. Midsummer's nite dream...
A fine work of anthropology, examining the sustaining rituals and culture of small town Portugal and the stresses that economic hardship and emigration exert.
