CRÍTICA

“uma das mais premiadas obras do cinema português”
ACADEMIA PORTUGUESA DE CINEMA (PT)

--

"the highly original short film 'Cigano'"
BFI • BRITISH FILM INSTITUTE (UK)

--

"Cigano is easily one of the best films that has ever been submitted to Cinema Jam. It left me speechless, which is unusual for me. We don\'t even use a star system here, but I\'m making an exception for this film: 5 out of 5 stars!\"

Jared Fryer, Fundador de CINEMAJAM (UK)

--

“His Cigano (Gypsy), shot in Portugal, is an exciting combination of sexual promise and imminent terror. You may not want to hitch a lift ever again after seeing it.”

Philip Wyn-Jones, IRIS PRIZE Jury Seletor (WALES)

--

“(David’s) work is both traditional narrative storytelling, but also contemporary in form and content. It’s complex and innovative. He’s able to create extreme tension and hold the audience’s attention with a masterful hand. Gypsy is a unique piece of filmmaking that I believe demonstrates his directing prowess."

Claudette Godfrey, SXSW Senior Film Programmer (USA)

--

A noite ficou mais empolgante com a exibição do curta português Cigano (David Bonneville). Nele, um jovem rico tem problemas com o pneu do seu carro e é ajudado por um cigano que estava nos arredores, e que depois disso o impele a dar uma carona como forma de agradecimento. A todo o momento, paira o clima de tensão entre os dois personagens, e fica evidente o abismo social entre eles. A forma como o Cigano se impõe me lembrou, à primeira vista, Paulo Miklos em O Invasor (Beto Brant). O inusitado desfecho quebrou as expectativas e não limitou o trabalho apenas a um discurso social. Uma ótima escolha.

Joyce Pais, revista CINEMASCOPE (BRASIL)

--

"With the taut pacing of a Patricia Highsmith story, ‘Cigano’ is relatable. We have all been in situations when someone has forced their presence upon us and brings out sides to our character that we don’t want to air. It is not about the tension between Portuguese and gypsies per se but between any group of haves and have-nots. The confined space and empty roads add to the atmosphere. Bonneville’s film (...) was shot over four days on a RED camera, with very professional production values."

Larry Oliver, FILM ANNEX (UK)

--

Comédia de acasos repleta de "portuguesidade", David Bonneville não hesita em recorrer ao estereótipo (nomeadamente, as classes sociais representadas pela dupla de protagonistas) para conduzir a história, despretensiosa e humoristicamente, na direcção de um final aberto que, talvez, não seja assim tão previsível.

Samuel Andrade, THE SHORT GUIDE TO MOVIES (Portugal)

--

"David Bonneville apresenta Cigano. Com um currículo invejável (tendo figurado em grandes festivais como os de Locarno, Toronto e Cannes), este é um dos principais favoritos a vencer o prémio de Melhor Ficção. Irrepreensível na técnica, dando espaço aos atores para criar suspense e desenvolverem as personagens, o realizador faz ainda um trabalho extraordinário em provocar a audiência utilizando somente a camara. Com implicações sociais, morais e um desfecho que instiga o debate entre qualquer tipo de público, Cigano é sem dúvida um dos melhores filmes que já passou no FARCUME."

Diogo Simão, ESPALHA-FACTOS (Portugal)

--

Bonneville has culled together a masterful wee tale of “Will he or won’t he?” as wealthy Whitebread Sebastian’s (Jaime Freitas) flat tire is expertly replaced by an extra-alluring local whose hot gypsy blood becomes increasingly hard to resist.
(...)
Magically, intriguingly—after an “oh, that’s too predictable” brush with the law thankfully becomes just a clever red herring—three cheers for the smart script!—Sebastian takes a possibly rare, deep toke on the shared joint then completely turns the tables and shifts into high gear. Now, will that be a Thelma and Louise exit, a touch of Flesh heat or a full helping of Sebastiane martyrdom? Can’t wait for the full-length sequel.

James Wegg, WHEN CULTURES COLIDE (USA)

--

“ the film toys in a very intelligent way with clichés. The story is simple, yet subtextual. ”

Ion Indolean, FILMSENSE (Romania)

--

" David Bonneville assina o argumento desta complexa e sedutora história (...) que nos permite pensar (imaginar) mais ou menos ponderadamente sobre a inevitabilidade de certas relações, conhecimentos ou amizades e como elas mudam de uma ou outra forma os destinos de cada um de nós. "

Paulo Peralta, CINEUPHORIA (Portugal)

--

" In short, this two-man thriller is but a variant of the classic hitchhiker setup of the driver becoming ever fearful of the stranger in his car and here its delivered with both aching tension and style. (...) a short that can only but leave you wanting more "

David Hall, GAY CELLULOID (UK)

--

“ O público deliciou-se com o genial "Cigano" de David Bonneville, com um maravilhoso Tiago Aldeia... “

Luís Veríssimo, DEZANOVE (Portugal)
