Marilyn Monroe of Tavira
19 September 2007 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This movie tells the story of a provincial girl in the Portugal of the fifties and sixties of last century during Salazar's dictatorship. Her course begins with a disastrous marriage with a violent husband whom she finishes by deserting to go to the small town of Tavira to stay with an aunt who is despised by local people for her uninhibited and open minded behaviour so opposed to the moral values of those times. There begins her gradual change from a shy provincial girl into a replica of Marilyn Monroe who has become her idol. She tries to imitate her idol in everything including physical aspect, dressing and hair style, turning men's heads around in that small town. She oscillates between 3 men: a middle-aged tailor who began to be her boss when she arrived there, a macho man of Latin lover kind who makes his living by smuggling and other obscure businesses and an a anti-fascist intellectual who has lots of troubles with the fascist political police. That course of hers is not linear and now and then it becomes troubled by some dramatic episodes. This is an honest drama movie though not particularly deep in terms of psychological analysis of characters. But they live before our eyes as genuine and authentic. The players who do the main parts perform them very well.
