Storyline

"The time is now, a numbing and timeless present of hospital stays, bureaucratic questioning, and wandering through remembered spaces... and suddenly it is also then, the mid '70s and the time of Portugal's Carnation Revolution, when Ventura got into a knife fight with his friend Joaquim." This is the synopsis from the press notes. The film is a sequel of sorts to Costa's "Colossal Youth" with Ventura again playing himself. Written by imnotcocteau@aol.com

Powerful and overwhelming images and faces
13 July 2020 | by valadasSee all my reviews

The life of capeverdian immigrants in Lisbon, Portugal. The plot story is not conspicuously remarkable and we only become aware of it through the characters' conversations. It is about their real problems. The characters are not proffessional actors and just immigrants themselves but they do a very good job. A rather interesting movie, well acted and directed.
