A new semester at Vanderbilt means new movies for their International Film Series! I believe things actually kicked off last week, but I didn’t get the email in time to post about it, but now we’re back on track!
Tonight The Strange Case of Angelica is showing at 7:30pm (make note of the later start time) at Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Cinema. It’s in Portuguese with English subtitles, and the synopsis is as follows:
A well-to-do family hires a young photographer to take the last photograph of their deceased daughter. Upon seeing her, he falls deeply in love and soon finds her returning to life in his camera lens.
The movie has a pretty excellent 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, if you’re curious. Also, the whole thing might sound kind of spooky, but the reviews throw out some terms like “fairy tale” and “magical,” so don’t be expecting a ghost story.
