Manoel de Oliveira film-wow. forever thank you
A strong, naturalistic anti-war film with great performances and a stirring ending. Thank you Jon Rarefillmm!
A very deep message. It was interesting how they compared much earlier times with their present situation. The bright spot of the film was when early explorers came upon that island. Wonderful nudity, and beautiful music in that segment of the movie. But back to the main point of the movie….war usually has many losers.
