A Portuguese Farewell Portugal 1985 | 85 min | OV | Colour and B&W | FF 2008

rated for 0 + years
Portuguese-Africa 1973: a small troop of soldiers marches through the jungle at night. A mine explodes, shots ring out, one dead. After 500 years, Portugal has
lost Africa, and parents have lost their beloved son. Portugal 1985: an old couple visit their son’s widow in Lisbon. They fail in their grief, without tears, without words. Images of modern Portugal are interspersed with scenes from the absurd overseas war. A film about how the end of colonialism was received by the people
of Portugal.
