Portuguese director Pedro Costa has been making great films for decades now, and among them, Vitalina Varela is pointed toward being his most acclaimed. The plot concerns the 55-year-old titular character who arrives to Lisbon from Cape Verde three days after her husband’s funeral, but much of the discussion surrounding the film is in regard to Leonardo Simões’ stunning cinematography, which is uncommonly dark and peerlessly exquisite.
In Portuguese with English subtitles.
