Old-school charm and expert performances elevate a somewhat creaky theatrical adaptation by the tireless centenarian Manoel de Oliveira. Full Review

The devastating yet logical closing scene is delicious in its poetic symmetry and irony. Full Review

It may be directed by the world's oldest director, but it's one of Oliveira's most potent and rewarding titles from this late portion of his career, as well as an indication that he's lost none of his talents as one of the world's notable directors. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- De Oliveira concocts striking images in very confined spaces, leaving us with a film that should feel cramped and claustrophobic but instead feels consistently vibrant and alive. Full Review

'Gebo' is an elemental thudding back to earth, body and soul entombed inside a dimly lit abode. Full Review

Gebo and the Shadow is a film about concrete, hard, and material things, as well as one about illusions. Its dramatic elements are simple. Full Review
