Beautiful film about a beautiful women in a beautiful island
15 April 2002 | by (Odivelas,Portugal) – See all my reviews

The story in this film is secondary:a divorced woman goes on holidays alone with her son to the island of Porto Santo,Portugal and ends up finding true love. Some might find the script boring and dull.I think it is simple and effective. But the main reason why you should see this film(especially IF YOU ARE PORTUGUESE)is because you'll get to know a lot about this beautiful island located in the Atlantic Ocean. Like for example:Did you know that Christopher Columbus used to live there with his wife and son? And if you're not interested in History or in amazing landscapes you should see it at least for Leonor Silveira's sake!Besides being probably the best portuguese actress of the moment(tied with Ana Moreira)in my opinion at least,she's also absolutely gorgeous and a true feast for your eyes indeed!
