Terra Franca is a foreign drama about a fisherman in Lisbon. While I’ve watched more movies from Portugal in the last week than I have had in a year, it’s impressive. Slice of life dramas impress me because I’m secretly 80 years old. For a film that plays up to 80 minutes long, it never overstays its welcome. I wish more movies knew how to do this.
The Indiepix DVD comes with no special features. Hell, it’s even shot in 4:3…what’s that about? This isn’t 1987 and we’re not in front of a live studio audience. Answer me this, Indiepix! ANSWER ME THIS!
