 Reeling: the Movie Review Show's review of A Talking Picture (Un Film Parlé)
The spoken word (as one might guess from the title), rather than physical action, is the focus of “A Talking Picture.” As the cruise ship cuts through the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Rosa tells her young daughter the history of each port they pass through.
The static camera lends a stolid, stodgy quality to “A Talking Picture” as the focus is on discussion and dialogue and not on the players.
If you appreciate didactic dialogue and long intellectual discourse, then you may like “A Talking Picture.” The lack of action, or even movement (and I grew tired of watching the damn ship’s prow slicing through the waves over and over, again), will be a turn off to most.

 Talking Picture, A (2004): Reviews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
De Oliveira wraps A Talking Picture with a simultaneous introduction and farewell--a bold curtain-dropper that's either a bleak joke or an imprecisely controlled scream of rage.
This is full of talk in the European art cinema tradition: intellectual conversations (often in multiple languages at once), gentile dinner conversation with an international all-star guest list.
A film destined to divide Manoel de Oliveira's fans but also to win him new ones, A Talking Picture is his simplest, most linear story in memory.

A Talking Picture is a stark, visually simple parable set on a peaceful cruise through the Mediterranean Sea.

 Kino Film: A Talking Picture
The first scene in Manoel de Oliveira’s A TALKING PICTURE depicts Rosa Maria (Leonor Silveira), a young history professor, and her seven-year-old daughter Maria Joana (Filipa de Almeida) on a bucolic cruise through the Mediterranean Sea.
Rosa’s purpose for this trip is twofold: to join her husband in Bombay, India, for a family vacation, and to acquire first-hand knowledge of——and introduce her daughter to——historical sites at the various cities along their journey.
But the curious tourists are forced to stop discussing the rhetoric of tradition and history when a strange threat disturbs the cruise, menacing the ship and the life of all of its passengers.

 A Talking Picture review (2003) Manoel de Oliveira - Qwipster's Movie Reviews
A Talking Picture might be of interest for armchair tourists and those who enjoy the History Channel, as it does feature a wealth of information and nicely shot vistas around famous world monuments.
Only in the final moments does A Talking Picture begin to resemble a straightforward film, although it is still in allegorical mode, never really developing its characters or events as anything more than a means to an end.
A Talking Picture is a stiff and artificial piece that contains its share of interesting moments, but never really achieves the absorption level required to make it truly compelling.

 Voyage to the End of the World: Manoel de Oliveira's A Talking Picture
So begins Manoel de Oliveira's A Talking Picture (Um Filme Falado, 2003): with promise, a young girl's first journey of discovery, her initiation into the grandeur of the Western tradition by way of an ocean voyage that will take her east toward the birthplaces of civilisation.
It is unsustainable, in part, because the very same frenetic activity associated with the rule of men and the rule of violence is part and parcel of the workings of human ingenuity that comprises the basis for the possibility of historical progress.
And instead of a character returning home from war, the characters in A Talking Picture seem to be inching ever closer toward war, whether it be their personal calamity or the spectre of September 11 a mere two months away in time, as pointedly specified by the July 2001 date of the opening quotation.

Bottom line: "A Talking Picture" is a thoughtful, provocative effort that makes up for its narrative failings with its astute philosophical musings.
Nothing less than a meditation on the state of Western civilization, the aptly titled "A Talking Picture" is a thoughtful, provocative effort that makes up for its narrative failings with its astute philosophical musings.
Nonetheless, it remains a pleasure to watch this idiosyncratic director grappling with such momentous issues in the twilight phase of his career, and the film has an undeniable resonance, especially in its haunting final moments, that will linger in viewers' memories far longer than many less flawed efforts.

 FESTIVAL: The Taos Talking Picture Festival: Bringing it Back to the Ranch
Only in its eighth year of existence, the Taos Talking Picture Festival (which took place April 12-15) has earned quite the reputation as being a venue where both seasoned and independent filmmakers can find solidarity and discourse in a relaxed, high-altitude, sun-drenched environment.
Even with a few stars in the spotlight, Taos still includes the regional community; the awards doled out were all made by local artists.
In quirky Taos fashion, sculptor Larry Bell, who was to present Sarandon's filmography and talk about his work, got on stage, apologized to executive director Morton Nilssen and wandered off saying "I just can't do this." It's those kind of little events that keep Taos the homegrown festival it initially set out to be.
