‘Vitalina Varela’ Review:
"The mystery and wonder of Pedro Costa’s
filmmaking defies any specific category other than his own unique
blend. The Portuguese director conjures dark, dreamlike visions of
post-colonial neglect and yearning that hover somewhere between fantasy
and neorealism, horror and melodrama, spirituality and desperation. “Vitalina Varela,”
Costa’s fifth journey into the shantytown Fontainhas outside of Lisbon,
once again showcases Costa’s masterful ability to mine cinematic poetry
from a unique environment and the mournful figures who wander through
its murky depths."
