This spellbinding film dispenses with not only dialogue but also most other conventions of documentary filmmaking to achieve an evocative portrait of the daily life and festivities in the Alto de Minho mountains of northern Portugal. Director Miguel Filgueiras, an artist from the area, has created an extended, almost surreal montage of the region’s cultural heritage. The beauty and power of his imagery combine with the uniqueness of his approach to make Alto do Minho an original tour de force.
