Storyline

A young and brave girl decides to continue her father's trade, carrying people and things with his boat. Thus she will be able to feed her 6 brothers/sisters. However the islanders do not trust a woman to carry them: they prefer her father's competitor, another boatman. In despair, Madalena decides to marry someone she doesn't love, while in reality she loves another man. The priest once more plays a significant role. He intercedes and the right couple get married.

In two words, amazing movie!
17 March 2003 | by sissy_charaSee all my reviews

All you would want from a movie!! Brilliant humour and lightness, a lively beautiful actress, an amazing scenery on a beautiful island with stunning pictures of the blue mediterannean sea. Fantastic music, and strong deep emotions of all sorts. Sadness, despair, lightness, hope, romance, simple beauty. After you have watched it you get an amazing inspired feeling of lightness and depth and joy. Feelings that linger and makes you want to watch the movie again and again not only for the insightful life lessons that lie behind but just for the deep joy of watching it.. The will and fight of the individual, the lovely Madalena who goes against the short sighted society she was born in and fights it, who fights the blows of destiny as well and keeps standing not betraying her dreams and her nature. The characters and the scenario is genuinely funny and dramatic at the same time. You just need to watch the film... Simply put, it is a masterpiece !!
