Trivia There are some language issues in the movie that one could take as goofs. But in fact, the movie takes English as a convention. The option to maintain Portuguese where logical would had made it a Portuguese-spoken movie trough the entire flashback and even some present scenes. So, all of the characters speak English, even if they should speak Portuguese, or German. The reference to their actual language is made trough their accents. That's why most of the actors playing Portuguese, even Brits, speak English with an effort to have the typical Portuguese accent. See more »

Quotes Amadeu: We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place. We stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there. We travel to ourselves when we go to a place. Now we have covered the stretch of our lives, no matter how brief it may have been.
