After seeing this movie, it was inevitable to think about the themes that it approaches. It made me think about the way our youngsters live the love and in what way the society and it's values impose their life. Six directors together managed the six stories, and each one of them is very specific, and the stories flow without making a bad aesthetic shift. On the contrary! Each one of them could be ours, or from someone we know. And it really does happen! They are genuine stories. They are a mirror of what teenagers are today, and the way they deal with it. This movie promises to be a breath of fresh air to the Portuguese cinema. It has nothing to do with previous creations. From platonic love to the loss a loved one that is re-guided by faith, we see what humans are.
