Oscar nominated Spanish director Carlos Saura has made a musical documentary on the subject of Portuguese Fado. From what I have read, this is Saura’s interpretation of Fado and includes many of famous fadistas including Amalia and Mariza as well as many more. More a series of vignettes including dance which is not characteristic of Fado, Saura brings together a series of impressions of the genre. It is perhaps a personal journey that is always going to remain one step away from the truth as Carlos is not from Portugal but from what I have seen so far, I think it will be a very interesting movie to watch.
Here’s a trailer I discovered on YouTube :-
