Arabian Nights DVD
In targeting the impact that contemporary European austerity has had upon his homeland, Portuguese filmmaker Miguel Gomes’ ambitious, audacious three-part opus─"The Restless One," "The Desolate One," and "The Enchanted One"─ employs the structure and morals of multiple Scheherazade stories to dazzling and devastating satirical effect. Politically charged potpourri stars Crista Alfaiate, Adriano Luz, Américo Silva, Luísa Cruz, Chico Chapas. 6 2/3 hrs. total. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Portuguese Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English; featurette; short film "Redemption" (2013); theatrical trailer. In Portuguese with English subtitles.
