Storyline

Spira, 18, spent the last eight years in remand school and returns to Reboleira, a slum in Lisbon. His friends Giovani and Chandi are still there, as are the locals, deals and parties. But some people, like the gang boss Kikas, aren't too pleased he's back. Spira realizes that things are changing. As the bulldozers begin to tear down the neighborhood, everyone tries to hold on to their dreams, like Iara who Spira falls in love with, or Giovani who'll do anything to be one of the top dealers.

Portugal true colors
19 September 2020 | by MarcoParzivalRochaSee all my reviews

Spira, a young man from Reboleira, returns to the neighborhood after 8 years serving time in a correctional facility. A raw and no-filter film about the daily life of one of the most problematic areas in Lisbon, Portugal. What we see in this story is the reality of many Portuguese boys (and some girls too), forgotten by the system after having done their "function", which in the end does not contribute to the personal and social development of these young people. How can you want someone who has only known misery and crime to change, without the necessary support and structural changes? It is too dramatized in certain parts, but it does not pinch the good set of narrative and photography. Basil da Cunha deserves the recognition given to the film on the Festivals circuit.
