Trivia

After cutting over 15% of the film's length, Portuguese censors passed the film in 1955, but conservative critics attacked it even so, for lacking production values and showing too much. Manuel Pina wrote: "The word 'love' should not be used relating to this film. Love is not sensuality. In this film, 'to love' means something else, that morality prevents us to speak about."

Mistrust capitulates to love
19 June 2015 | by rene-brankoSee all my reviews

I was so impressed with the movie that I went to see it half a dozen times more. The two songs of Amalia Rodriguez (Barco Negro & Solidao) stayed in my memory for many, many years. I promised to myself that one day I will go and visit this country that produced such unusual and captivating music. It took me 18 years to finally cross Portugal's border - and I stayed for 41 years - until now, 2015! Even though it ends in a sort-of suspense, the statement of her move contains proof of love in a surrender...which could not be taken back. The three main actors were good, especially the fado-singing lady which impressed me with/through the strength of her performance. I deem the movie a classic and I would like to see it again - before I die...and I'll be 83 come 10th of July! Were it not for the brutal beginning, I'd give the movie an 'Excellent' vote.
