Amazing adaptation of a story with the same name, by Eça de Queiroz. The movie's story was addapted to the current times, but as the dialogues didn't change much and the style of filming makes it even more interesting than the original story.
Taken in these days of economic meltdown, and loose ethics, the story acquires a different broader meaning.
The image is simple, but amazing. Almost every frame looks like a paiting. Returning to a broad take of Lisbon, at different times of the day is so beautiful!
