Father Antonio is a priest by vocation, committed and generous, dear people of Vila Daires a quiet village of the north. But Father Anthony is also a man, and Vila Daires is not as peaceful as it seems. The good intentions of the Father will not be sufficient to halt the worsening of the conflict. And when your fate intersects with Lena, the "black sheep" of the village, Father will also be forced to confront his own demons. Especially with those who never even thought that could exist.

A technical (but not dramatic) achievement
22 September 1999 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

There are some beautifully realized moments in this picture, specially the ones concerning nocturnal shots. But despite being the greatest grossing portuguese film in history, there are a lot of plotholes and failures for it to pass flawless. The plot is simple. A priest tries to assist a drug addict and becomes addicted to both her and drugs. They start to fall into the hands of narcotics and soon they do anything to urge their needs. But there will have to be a redemption. And meanwhile the film takes his time to display every social matter in the last years. This, mixed with good perfomances from the protagonists, somewhat between good and bad from the secondary players, a good cinematography and editing and a strikingly good score (probably the best thing in the picture) makes this a watchable film but no more than that. Joaquim Leitão did "Adão e Eva" and hit bulls' eye. He did this one and, despite earning even more money, didn't reach the novelty of the other. Still, films like these are good hopes to what the future moviemaking in Portugal can be, specially in technical terms.
