O Gebo e a Sombra & Bella Addormentata

Sep 5 | Venice Film Festival

O Gebo e a Sombra, by 105 year Portugese director Manoel de Oliveira. Very simple, like a stage set, measured but slow. I fell asleep again! However no sex nor violence!
Rating: 5/10.

Bella addormentata (Sleeping Beauty) by Italian Marco Bellocchio, a well known Italian cast, based upon the case of a girl who was kept alive for 17 years in a coma & then moved from Lecco to Udine where she was allowed to die. Various parallel stories running alongside it whilst the Parliament were debating the subject. As a home game it was very well received.
