one of the best Portuguese movies i've ever seen
7 June 2003 | by (lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

plot : a woman (alexandra lencastre) lives in a house and acts like she's the president of the u.s.a the script is wonderful and the main idea is awesome, she gives interviews and her mother is a kinda demented and hash addicted old-lady (she's really funny too) she makes speeches about women rights and her husband is always sleeping (we never see his face 'cause he's always in bed with the sheets all over his face)her secretary (rita blanco) is attending a terapist and tells her about her strange dreams (very very surreal and wonderfully brought to screen) i saw this movie on the theatre and i must say that i loved it from the start. i recommend this film to everyone.
