Hovering Over the Water

Hovering Over the Water ★★★★★

It is like a Raul Ruiz film kept alll of its dream logic, but keep a straightforward shape even as it imagines all those possibles lifes to be. Monteiro made this after a couple of mythic fables about Portugal (Veredas and Silvestre) and A Flor do Mar is close to them while pointing to his more confrontational late work. Perhaps guys like Monteiro are right and all great movies need a character who functions like a pirate.
