rated for 0 + years
Medical student Vasco loves his life in Lisbon: he parties and goes dancing and loves to set the girls' hearts a-flutter. And, naturally, with all the partying he doesn't have that much time for his studies. To say nothing of a job. But that doesn't matter, because his two aunts from the provinces are financing him at uni. But when he fails his final exams and the aunts announce they're coming on a spontaneous visit, Vasco is in trouble. A Song From Lisbon is a fast-paced comedy and was a box office hit in Portugal.
