Horse Money
aka Cavalo dinheiro
First screened in September 2014
Director: Pedro Costa. Cast: Ventura, Vitalina Varela, Tito Furtado. Screenplay: Pedro Costa.

Twitter Capsule: Imagine final shots of Tsai's Stray Dogs adapted as full Portuguese feature. Visual experiments almost overwhelm ideas.

VOR:   Not every aesthetic risk here would pay equal rewards in other contexts; some don't pay full rewards even in this context. Still, Costa's own Goodbye to Language is plenty provocative.
