Cinematographic poem

 

Films, films, 

The best resemble

Great books

That are difficult to penetrate

Because of their richness and depth.

 

The cinema isn’t easy

Because life is complicated

And art is indefinable.

Making life is indefinable

                             And art

                     Complicated.

– Manoel de Oliveira, Cinematographic Poem (1986)
