    Subtitles recently completed on KG.

    Oliveira’s death a few days ago inspired me to give this a chance, but I’m surprised by the acclaim. Oliveria’s trademark love-it-or-hate-it stilted acting and restrained emotions, this time applied to mopey 17th century teens. Unremarkable mise-en-scene. Poor lighting. Simple story told at twice the length it merited.
