Synopsis

Rita has everything. 15 years and a whole summer ahead of her; a future ex-boyfriend and a best friend to braid her hair. But then, she visits an exhibition from a known neighbor, and her perfect world crumbles around her.

Our take

João Nicolau has become one of the main voices of contemporary Portuguese cinema, next to the likes of Miguel Gomes or João Pedro Rodrigues. This dreamy coming-of-age tale of both epic and intimate proportions—just like first love—is a truly original, enchanting ode to adolescence and fantasy.
