“I am sure that this Portuguese cinematographic offer will surprise many fans of the Seventh Art in Moscow, for its beauty and narrative depth; for its extraordinary photography and edition; for its complexity and at the same time simplicity of the characters and backgrounds; for its uniqueness in the approach to problems so common to both our countries. This “Portuguese perception” of today’s world, in a ribbon of time and space, will certainly surprise the “look” of the demanding audience of Russia’s capital city.”
