Having previously crafted numerous experimental short films, Portuguese director Sandro Aguilar takes the helm for this elliptical, feature length drama centering on the relationship that develops between a lugubrious man and melancholy widow after meeting in a Lisbon hospital. Shortly after paying a visit to his dying father, Rui (Antonio Pedroso) meets a mysterious pregnant woman who has just lost her husband in a terrible car accident. Neither can help but feeling as if they have met before, but where could it have been, and when? Along with fellow auteurs Miguel Gomes and Joao Pedro Rodrigues, director Aguilar is part of a thriving experimental film scene that began to emerge in Portugal around the onset of the 21st Century.
