Life in a small Portuguese fishing village
6 June 2007 | by luciensmithSee all my reviews

I saw this movie recently at the Freer Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, as part of their series of Portuguese films. The print they showed didn't have an orchestral score, music was provided by an actual real-live pianist! The film provides an interesting view of the at-times harsh life in a Portuguese fishing village in the '30s. With a nice, not-too-dopey love story, of course. However, the thing that struck me most - why are all the men wearing mis-matched plaid clothes? Was that the fashion at that time? Had a ship from Scotland wrecked nearby and it's cargo of plaid woolens washed ashore? Anybody know about Portuguese fashions at that time?
