La cage dorée
Watch La cage dorée (2013)
For thirty years now Maria and José Ribeiro have been living on the ground floor of a Haussmannian building in one of the most exclusive districts of Paris. Everybody loves this nice couple of Portuguese immigrants, Mario for being a topnotch caretaker, José, a construction site supervisor by trade, for helping to do all kinds of jobs in the house. So, the day Maria and José announce their wish to return to Portugal, everybody is crushed. No, they just can't let them do a thing like that ...!
In my opinion La cage dorée is one of the most impressive films. It's hard to find a movie done this well. I sat for a long time after the end of La cage dorée, reflecting on my thoughts. I'm the biggest fan in the world of movies like this. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Ruben Alves's films play on emotions and are able to move a more sensitive viewer. Now, watch and enjoy :).
