Got a chance to see this at the Lisbon&Estoril Film Festival, with the presence of the director and 4 of the 5 actresses and it was great. The film has a lot of dialog, specially for a Portuguese film, and strikes a good balance between drama and (dark) comedy, as the 5 friends uncover some unexpected secrets during the night before their friend's wake. The feminist approach might feel a bit heavy-handed at times.
