Simply one of the best Portuguese movies ever and a must-see
16 July 2004 | by XerifeSee all my reviews

For me, Os Imortais is one of the best Portuguese movies of all time and one of the best movies of 2003 in the world. The cast is excellent and António Pedro Vasconcelos does an amazing jog.

Nicolau Breyner reveals himself as a fantastic drama-actor (much better than in his comedy roles). Emmanuelle Seigner shows us a great performance (great as the Ninth Gate one) and Rogério Samora and Joaquim de Almeida reassured that they are two of the best Portuguese actors ever. Rui Unas, the surprise (he is a famous TV talk-show host), gives us a remarkable Vítor Pratas with a great sense of humor. And with minor-roles occupied by actresses with the quality of Alexandra Lencastre and Maria Rueff, this movie surely proves that Portugal can make excellent cinema.

If you see this movie, rent it or buy it and you'll see it's money well spent.

I recommend this must-see to everyone who likes good movies, rather than popcorn American movies.

Great director... Great cast... Great script... Great photography...
