Miguel Mendes lifts the ambitions


Miguel Gonçalves Mendes, whose intention of adapting José Saramago's The Gospel According to Jesus Christ was officially revealed yesterday, maybe be down to something trully ambitious, within a cinematic culture smeared by wails of poverty and arty films.

As far as the boat threatens to go, I still don't know if we can speak of a Portuguese film. We're talking of big budget with international co-production, an international screenwriter to go for the rewriting and a major international cast and crew, just like Blindness, by the Brazilian Fernando Meirelles, got Don McKellar (writer), Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo and Gael Garcia Bernal.
