A Masterpiece! One of the best films of 2000., 26 January 2003
Author: john_parker from Lisboa, Portugal

«No Quarto da Vanda» is one of the most powerful films that i have ever seen.It´s a perfect picture of our actual reality. Drugs are the cause of poverty in a great amount of civilized and non-civilized countries.

Pedro Costa´s «No Quarto da Vanda» is certainly an alert for those people that still live in a magic world full of happiness and joy... Impressive and cruelly real!

Luis Mendonça, John-Parker. 10/10.
