Storyline

The Penha Laredo, completely ruined, needed money. The family entrepreneur then has the idea of receiving in his mansion, rich guests that could help restore the family finances. But there was one problem: the matriarch of the family (Amelia Rey Colaço) could not know they were guests and therefore they had to pretend to be distant relatives who came from afar. Written by João Ferreira

Portuguese nobility without a dime
28 March 2009 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Brilliant sitcom about a Portuguese noble family that faces economic ruin. To survive, they rent rooms in their old and decayed family manor to tourists, while trying to conceal the fact from the elderly lady of the manor - brilliantly played by Amélia Rey Colaço. Ruy de Carvalho is unforgettable playing her son, a demented war hero-wannabe that can be frequently be found fantasy-fighting in his airplane simulator.

Although by today's standards the comedy may be a bit outdated, it is still good fun and will bring back memories of some iconic actors of Portuguese television and theater. Not to be missed if you understand the language, and especially if you are Portuguese.
