19-year-old Júlio is still wet behind the ears when he moves to Lisbon. On his arrival he meets the young maid Ilda. Boy meets girl – always a good start to a film.
In this case it marks the start to modern Portuguese cinema. A completely new, radical view of the world, costarring the “white city” upon the River Tejo. And every child in Portugal knows the title music by Carlos Paredes. A great film about innocence – and losing it.
