The first monograph to explore the entire work of the master of Portuguese film (interview with and visual lay-out by Manoel de Oliveira).
Aniki Bobo, Ill-Fated Love, The Satin Slipper, My Case, The Cannibals, Abraham's Valley, The Strange Case of Angelica... Manoel de Oliveira's exemplary work offers a whole summary of film history. From silent films to the avant-garde, from one aesthetic style to another, his work maps out the main evolution of cinematographic forms. The connection between the moving image and the theater has rarely been investigated and used with such force and beauty.
Manoel de Oliveira's (Porto, 1908-2015) oeuvre is one of the most original chapters in the history of cinema. His work has received universal recognition as demonstrated by the host of awards from film festivals and academies worldwide. Amor de Perdição (1978), Francisca (1981), O sapato de cetim (1985), Non, ou A Vã Glória de Mandar (1990), Vale Abraão (1993) are some of his greatest accomplishments.
