Plot Summary

The director Friedrich Monroe has trouble with finishing a silent b&w movie about Lisbon. He calls his friend, the sound engineer Phillip Winter, for help. As Winter arrives Lisbon weeks later, Monroe is disappeared but has left the unfinished film.

Goofs In Lisbon, Mr. Winter reads a loving air mail post card received from Teresa, touring with her musical group, Madredeus in Brazil [at around 1:09:29]. The card shows Rio and Sugarloaf Mountain. However the card is postmarked May (possibly June) 7, 1994 in Portugal. See more »
