Storyline

Portugal 1938. Pereira is the editor of the culture section of the Lisboa, an unaffiliated evening paper. There is civil war in Spain and the fascists are in power in Portugal, but he concerns himself only with his work (writing biographies of famous writers and translating French novels) and ignores what is going on around him. He hires Monteiro Rossi, an idealistic young man in love with a beautiful communist, as an assistant. He reluctantly helps them when they begin to get into trouble due to subversive activities. Eventually events force him to take a stand. Written by Anonymous

A film with two great qualities
18 October 2002 | by agyanezSee all my reviews

I think this film has two great qualities. The first is that you can watch one of the last work of Marcello Mastroianni, the most famous and I think one of the best italian actor of every time. The second is that this film is really a teaching. I remember that, when I watched it the first time, I was hit by the semplicty used to explain the terrible time of fascism in Europe. From then on I am sure that this film can explain better than more words the violence and absurdity of years not so distant.
