Product Description

Costa's auspicious debut demonstrates his love and knowledge of both classical Hollywood and European art cinema. Costa explores the plight of two brothers as they attempt to come to terms with the death of their father and the legacy of violence and debt he has left behind.

Shot in startling monochrome, Costa has created a lushly stylized romantic fable. Blood stands apart from his later 'neo-realist' works, but is uniquely formed work of Art in its own right.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: Portuguese ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Vicente, seventeen, lives with brother Nino, ten-years-old, and his ailing father in a derelict house on the outskirts of the capital. They don't seem to remember their mother, and are very much attached to their father, despite his temper, and his frequent absences from home. One day, the father leaves for good, and Vicente and Nino swear to cover it up. It's their secret. Clara, the primary school assistant, is fascinatingly beautiful, and secretive, and (may be) she knows it aswel. There are other secrets, though: the origin of the money that appears at Vicente's house; the relationship between Vicente's well-to-do uncle and his girlfriend; the relationship between the four people who once played the cards together, and now can't stand each other. ...Blood ( O Sangue ) ( To aima )

5.0 out of 5 stars the poetics of encounters 1 Oct 2009
Costa's debut has the capacity to hypnotise and inspire wonder like a slow flowing river or the movement of starlings. The film is shot in black and white and that is what it is, an examination of the encounter between these two, it is not monochrome. Black and white are not opposites but are married by distinction, it is a relationship of difference not opposition and this encounter is given figurative power by the encounters of characters and of spaces.
The film is a journey, not guided by telos but by the endless movement of emotions, the chances of life and the experiments of youth. The two young lovers dance thier way towards a relationship, an awkward dance, they stumble over eachothers expectations as they move toward some semblence of what the world might expect like the surrogate family of 'Rebel Without a Cause'. It is though, in another film by Nick Ray that we might begin to discern the intertextual nuances of adolescents dreaming of adulthood, 'They Live By Night'. Both films deliver a bruised vision of dreamed families stumbling towards dissolution.
This is the first film I have seen by Costa, just watched it 10 minutes ago. It is the kind of film that you experience as a form of osmosis, it rises inside you, an oneiric study in mood and emotional infusion, narcotic cinema, beautiful.
