Letterboxd's Top 50 Portuguese films

I haven't found a top-Portuguese-films-ranked-by-average-user-rating list here in Letterboxd, so I decided to make one myself. Included are films that were financed with Portuguese money, are spoken in Portuguese, or have a considerable Portuguese cast. So no need to be directed by a Portuguese person, although I'm not sure if it's fair to include Manoel's Destinies or Love Torn in a Dream (I still haven't seen them).

Limited the list to 50 films, not only to reach a round number but also because there aren't many films with a great average here in LB (the bottom films only have a 3.7 average score...). However, I hope you don't limit yourself to pictures that appear here, as there are many great Portuguese…
