Thanks for the Oliveira info. The absolute highlight of my time in Portugal this Summer (among many wonderful memories)was the day in the Douro valley, setting for Abraham Valley, so i look forward especially to his Douro/Oporto film. If anyone's seen Voyage to the Beginning of the World, well that starts off where we stayed and almost bought a house- by the sea next to the Spanish border. Beautiful!
Great to be back able to buy online, so have now bought several i'd been wanting for a while but didn't think were available back in May, off Amazon.com:
Landscape in the Mist
4 films by Iosseliani (really looking forward to this, includes Singing Blackbird, Fall of Leaves, Pastoral)
Mughal-e-Azam (Indian classic)
Hour of the Star
1900 (Australian copy)
The Cow (Mehrjui)
i see Brazilian classic Barren Lives is due out in Jan.
And i think i'll go over to Yesasia for The Wayward Cloud.
