Fados

Carlos Saura
90' / 2007 / Portugal, Spain
Portuguese
English and spanish subtitled

‘Fados’starts a new chapter and sets new challenges for the famous director in his attempt to capture the elusive nature of the Portuguese‘saudade’ and represent a true portrait of the Lusitanic soul through his most emblematic musical genre.
Using Lisbon as a canvas, the film explores the complicated relationship between music and the city, and shows how the fado has evolved over the years, from its African and Brazilian origins to the new wave of modern fadosingers.
Under the musical supervision of Carlos do Carmo, the film represents one of the best ‘World Music’ soundtracks to date, and includes the best of new Portuguese talent with the singers Mariza and Camané, together with the foreign legends, Caetano Veloso and Chico Buarque, without forgetting the young promises, Lila Downs and Lura.
Thanks to the flawless photographs of Lisbon taken by the famous directors, José Luis Lopez Linares (Iberian Goya Award for ‘Salomé’) and Eduardo Serra (with two Oscar nominations), Patrick de Bana’s choreography acclaimed by critics, the skilled direction and Saura’s staging, the camera becomes the real protagonist, leaving the audience free to focus on the most important aspect: emotion and feelings.
