JOSÉ E PILAR
by Miguel Gonçalves Mendes (Portugal/Spain/Brasil, 2010, 125’, original version with Italian subtitles)
With: José Saramago, Pilar del Rio, Gael García Bernal
“A man needs his reserve of dreams,” said José Saramago. In the film, as if in a dream, runs the last act of the long, courageous life of one of the greatest writers in the world accompanied by his Spanish translator and lifelong companion Pilar del Rio. José e Pilar is the tale of two years of the life of one of the most famous literary couples of all time, the rituals, the passions and the smiles of a love story that runs parallel to the literary creation.
