Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This exquisitely wrought Portuguese drama is framed by the conversation between two old flames who meet at a restaurant to remember a recently murdered friend, a film producer who had been filming an adaptation of 19th-century playwright Alexandre Herculano's historical drama O'Bobo. Their ensuing conversation forms the narrative framework for several stories that are shown via flash back. The dinner topics include, the destruction of their relationship the making of the film and the events that lead to the producer's demise.
