CastIsabel Cardoso, Carloto Cotta, Teresa Madruga, Manuel Mesquita, Ana Moreira, Ivo Müller, Henrique Espírito Santo, Laura Soveral
The entrancing new film by Portuguese auteur Miguel Gomes (Our Beloved Month of August) travels from a modern "Paradise Lost" to an exotic, magical "Paradise" as it intertwines a chronicle of illicit love with a sly overview of Portugal's colonial history.
A temperamental old woman, her Cape Verdean maid and a neighbour devoted to social causes live on the same floor of a Lisbon apartment building. When the old lady dies, the other two learn of an episode from her past: a tale of love and crime set in an Africa straight from the world of adventure films.
