Storyline

In the summer of 1870, Raquel, who owns a farm, and lives secluded in her mansion with an old butler and a handful of servants, feels proud when an odd acquaintance comes by. Adriana and her daughter-in-law, Ermesinda, a very young girl, just happen to be visiting - the second time in 15 years for Adriana, and the first time for the teenager Ermesinda. The meeting seems to be pleasant, and yet, for reasons untold, there is coldness and reserve between Adriana and Raquel. Their ambiguous relationship will be revealed, when by accident old wounds are reopened. Written by Artemis-9

I liked this one.

I liked this one. It's touching and sweet to see a portuguese movie that's not a waste of time, big waves for the old-lady who's always drinking strong tea with lemon. I recommend this film to everybody, but be sure to put the subtitles on. oh and portuguese people be kind enough to watch this movie because it's not a waste..like the majority..err..nevermind.
