IN VANDA'S ROOM

No Quarto da Vanda

Directed by Pedro Costa
Portugal, Germany, 2000
Drama

Synopsis

With the intimate feel of a documentary and the texture of a Vermeer painting, Pedro Costa’s In Vanda’s Room takes an unflinching, fragmentary look at a handful of self-destructive, marginalized people, centered around the heroin-addicted Vanda Duarte.

Our take

Undoubtedly one of the most important directors of the last four decades, Pedro Costa has built up a remarkable body of work, blending documentary and fiction and rethinking cinema from the ground up for the digital age. The epic In Vanda’s Room may be his masterpiece.
