The critical hit of the 2012 Berlinale, Miguel Gomes’ rich, funny and poignant film is a one-of-a-kind wonder. Three women, neighbours in a Lisbon apartment complex, respond in different ways to the loneliness of their enigmatic existence. One of them has a dark secret in her past, which gradually unfolds in a long flashback that casts an ironic light on the lost paradise that the characters, the filmmaker and the audience are all in search of.
