    "Há, na história do cinema, cinco ou seis filmes cuja crítica gostamos de fazer exclusivamente por estas palavras: “É o mais belo dos filmes!”. Porque não há elogio maior. Efetivamente, por que falar mais longamente de "Tabu", "Viagem à Itália", ou "A carruagem de ouro"? Como a estrela-do-mar que se abre e se fecha, eles sabem mostrar e esconder o segredo de um mundo do qual são ao mesmo tempo o único depositário e o fascinante reflexo. A verdade é…

    Gaily bedight,
    A gallant knight,
    In sunshine and in shadow,
    Had journeyed long,
    Singing a song,
    In search of Eldorado.

    But he grew old—
    This knight so bold—
    And o'er his heart a shadow
    Fell as he found
    No spot of ground
    That looked like Eldorado.

    And, as his strength
    Failed him at length,
    He met a pilgrim shadow—
    "Shadow," said he,
    "Where can it be—
    This land of Eldorado?"

    "Over the Mountains
    Of the Moon,
    Down the Valley of the Shadow,
    Ride, boldly ride,"
    The shade replied—
    "If you seek for Eldorado!"

    ("Eldorado", Edgar Allan Poe)
