It could be a real story...
Partially based on a true story, a US teacher sent to prison after falling in love with a student and becoming pregnant, Amo-te Teresa («I Love You, Teresa») is a touching story, very well directed, for a small budget production.
First of a set of telefilms produced for independent portuguese TV channel SIC, this one was a winner. An incredible share and the greatest audience of a portuguese film, ever.
The plot is very simple, but emotions were very well filmed.
Teresa is a medical doctor, divorced, returning to the small village where her mother was expelled years ago after an extra-marital affair. This time Teresa «bumps» with a teenager, felling in love.
Actors perform their job in a very honest way, although they are relatively unknown. A nice, sensitive drama, worth of every minute. Also an historical mark in TV telefilm production.
