Raw, real and beautiful - a real meeting for real people
9 June 2017 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Honestly, I am very glad someone made this film in a time when love-movies seem to have everything except love. It's one of those films that lives with you long after watching it. Because it is raw, it feels real, it is deeply sad and simply beautiful. But it is definitely not for everyone. Porto is that kind of film only those will really appreciate who had something similar in their lives. A very strong connection with someone that lasted just a brief period of time. A week... maybe only a night.

It is shot on film, and looks fantastic, it feels poetic though it is never over stylised.

It shows love and connection in a painful yet very elegant and poignant way. The peace is slow, the atmosphere is strong. A truly independent and "human" film.

It doesn't show anything new, it might be a bit too simple - but its honest approach makes it absolutely watchable. For those who have ever really loved someone, and then they said goodbye - it could be an important experience.
