Storyline

Portugal 1938. Pereira is the editor of the culture section of the Lisboa, an unaffiliated evening paper. There is civil war in Spain and the fascists are in power in Portugal, but he concerns himself only with his work (writing biographies of famous writers and translating French novels) and ignores what is going on around him. He hires Monteiro Rossi, an idealistic young man in love with a beautiful communist, as an assistant. He reluctantly helps them when they begin to get into trouble due to subversive activities. Eventually events force him to take a stand. Written by Anonymous

A note about the music
2 August 2005 | by (Astoria, NY) – See all my reviews

For those to whom it matters, this film has a very fine Ennio Morricone score, elegant, rhythmic and with prominent classical guitar and a touch of Fado styling. It also marks Morricone's first collaboration with Dulce Pontes, the magnificent Portugese Fado singer who sings the hell out of a theme in this film called "A Brisa do Coracao."

After this collaboration, Pontes occasionally started singing on Morricone's live orchestral concerts throughout Europe, and they made a wonderful album together in 2003 called "Focus", in which Ms. Pontes sings vocal versions (in Portugese, Italian and English) of 15 Morricone film melodies with the maestro arranging and conducting. Surprisingly, "A Brisa do Coracao" is not among them. But while Ms. Pontes has enjoyed a huge following in Portugal, her work on this film with Morricone was the gateway to a far larger international career, which she certainly richly deserves.
