João Pedro Rodrigues

rated for 0 + years
Delusion, reality or obsession? The supermarket worker Odete is convinced she’s carrying the baby of her recently deceased neighbour Pedro – a claim that throws Pedro’s gay lover Rui into even deeper despair. Director Rodrigues ignores conventions and skilfully develops a multileveled narrative to convey various states of consciousness. Loneliness and survival viewed from a new perspective.
