I watched this on the excellent MuBI Internet movie channel and found it an intriguing look at personal relationships. It has a very leisurely pace and there is no "action" but it is beautifully filmed and the scenes of Lisbon are beguiling. The dialogue and motion of the actors is deliberately stylised and there is much looking directly at the camera. Also the framing of dialogue between pairs of characters is unconventional; it shows each speaker full face in turn. Nevertheless, if you can cope with such lack of cinematic convention, it's an enjoyable piece. The Portuguese language is beautiful, to say nothing of the protagonist played by Leonor Baldaque.
