Unfortunately, Portuguese cinema is still dominated by this sort of movies. There is an interesting setup and characters but then nothing happens for the whole movie and the story just ends abruptly. To be clear, what I mean by "nothing happens" is not that there is no action, I know I'm not watching transformers here. What I mean is that, unlike, say, a Bergman movie, there is no story, no character development and nothing similar to an interesting dialogue. The acting is wooden not because the actors are bad but just because there is nothing to act. I really wanted to like this because, again, there is an interesting setup here, and the potential to illustrate some pressing social issues. But then nothing happens. Too bad.
A visually intense and poetic coming-of-age film portrays the fourteen-years-old David who is forced to become the man of the house while his grandfather lives his last days in hospital.
