Manoel De Oliveira


Conceived of in 1952, Angelica is one of several ambitious projects which were never able to be made because of the strict censorship of the Salazar regime in power at the time in Portugal. 40 years later, Oliveira has decided to bring out the previously unpublished screenplay of a film which has always been close to his heart.

Based on a mysterious dialogue between a young dead woman and a photographer hurriedly called in to capture the beauty of the features of a face about to disappear forever, the work provides a fascinating introduction to the universe of one of the century’s most important filmmakers.
