    ★★★★½ Watched 10 Nov, 2016

    This is not a review.
    The night I went to see this movie
    My boyfriend had to do something at his workplace
    So I went with him and missed the conversation that followed with Jim Jarmusch and Ron Padgett.
    When I was leaving the cinema, Jim was just coming in.
    He looked at me, I glanced back and saw an expression of disapproval.
    But it's okay.
    I think his movies are great.

    I feel like I should have something to say about this film solely for the fact that I'm a portuguese citizen, but the truth is I was just left speechless.

    My first tought after leaving the cinema was wishing that everybody could be portuguese to experience this masterpiece the way I did, but at the same time I wouldn't wish that upon anybody because, well...yeah, go watch it.

    This was one of Wes Anderson's choices for the Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival.

    Simple and enjoyable. I liked the segment "Pizze a Credito" the best (the one with Sophia Loren) but the others are also unbelievably great.

    Note: Wes Anderson claimed he really wants to make a movie in this format, which sounds great to me. He also had really nice socks that matched his scarf. Oh man, Wes is the best.
