Cape what?
17 August 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Testamento" is a retrospective of the life, the loves, and the labors of Cape Verde's wealthiest man told after his passing with flashbacks. Always good natured and even tempered, what this wistful little Portuguese dramady lacks in ambition and extremes of entertainment value it makes up for in its breezy, picture postcard beauty of Cabo Verde and the colorful visages of its mostly Brazilian cast. Not for everyone, some foreign film buffs might qualify this little flick as a "gem". (B-)

Note - Cape Verde is a Portuguese colony of about nine small islands in the North Atlantic 400 miles West of Senegal, Africa. I'd never heard of it either.
