Isabel, a girl in her late teens, is unable to determine herself and understand herself - lost in the memory of her late mother, living with her father and sister, and discovering love with Diogo. Emptiness and somber perspectives of the future seem to encircle them, despite of moments of loud music in a nightclub or a sunny day at the beach. Written by
This movie is great, I've seen it twice and the last time more than 20 years ago and I still remember it with found memories. The plot was not really that important, but for me the combination of the summer heat with the Edgar P. Jacobs comic book "Le piége diabolique" was for me the odd but perfect combination. The plot not really easy to explain in words after so many years, summertime is coming to an end and the main character Isabel is a teanage girl lost in life. Her father and sister live with her and she has romantic interest in a boy called Diogo. However she goes to the big city (Lisbon) and after awhile she calls back Diogo and the she is in a situation that her sister is leaving (for long trip) and her father is hill. Life is passing by the characters in the middle of the heat of the end of summertime.
