Love and life are not what she thought they would be when Evita moved from Lisbon to Mozambique, a country on the edge of in-dependency...
1 December 2004 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

During the war of in-dependency Evita (Beatriz Batarda) moves from Lisbon to Mozambique to marry Luís (Filipe Duarte). She slowly discovers how different and disturbing life is in a country of war and when her husband is send on a military mission she starts to fight loneliness. Over time she finds out more about her husband and Mozambique than she would have imagined in her peaceful European home. Racism, violence, injustice and fatalism make life unbearable... (exploring this "insufferableness" makes it a very Portuguese movie)

Beautifully made for a first time... Margarida Cardoso's first full length movie has rich characters, marvelous images and draws a profound picture of life in Mozambique during its struggle of in-dependency (seen from a Portuguese perspective).
