Leonor Silveira

Love blogtext...

L.S. ,the unforgetable face in Manoel de Oliveira's "Vale Abraão"

In this week that I have met again (helas! in celuloid only) the cult-actress of Manoel de Oliveira I have to confess an youthful crush for Leonor Silveira. She had the wide-eyed, sweet-smiled and soft-intelligent face of a young aristocratic European circa 1910. I once engaged in social intercourse with her at an obscure little bar in Collares but, being too anxious, I couldn't keep it up. The flame of the conversation, I mean.
