O Desterrado packs a great deal of information and entertainment value in its brief three reels. Jose Amaro stars as famed Portuguese sculptor Soares dos Reis, whose controversial life and work was well-known to the domestic audiences for which this film was conceived. The film was the handiwork of Fernando Fragoso, one of the hardy pioneers of the Portuguese cinema. The narration was provided by popular Lisbon-based radio commentator Joao de Camara. O Desterrado was one of several documentaries on the lives of artists that met with public approval in the years following WW II.
