Goofs

For at least three times, Mario is shown traveling on the train. He is supposed to be traveling from Cacem towards Lisbon (which is further supported by him being shown entering the Lisbon subway system), but the landscaped that can be seen outside the window train belongs to a trip from Cacem towards Sintra (the opposite direction).

An outstanding movie.go watch it.right now.
4 March 2006 | by Marco_God1See all my reviews

Everything in this movie is really well done.From the breathtaking performances from the leading actors, the amazing photography, the fantastic soundtrack(which is repetitive,but it relates to the sense of routine the main character has come to terms with) to the way that Lisbon is shot, it is a must-see for anyone who enjoys great dramatic movies.It is great to see a Portuguese movie that IS NOT a Manoel de Oliveira wannabe.It is also kind of minimalistic and slow, but it has it's own way of telling a story.This movie came as a surprise to me because I have never seen a Portuguese movie so well done.It is the supreme evidence that less is more.I can't wait to see Marco Martins' next project.
