rated for 0 + years
Causing almost no bloodshed, a handful of brave Portuguese army captains put an end to Europe’s oldest dictatorship with what was called the “Carnation Revolution”
on 25th April 1974. Besides telling a thrilling (and true) heroic story, actress Maria de Medeiros (“Pulp Fiction”, “Henry and June”) also depicts the bitter, contradictory
sides of the coup d’état.
