Review

The Portuguese critic turned director’s luminous black-and-white fable is a filmic experience that’s hard to pinpoint. Part playful satire, part nostalgic ode to a bygone era—namely, the romance of a flourishing Lusophone colony in Africa—this two-part story of a lonely Lisbon woman who delves into the past of her dead neighbor might be too experimental for some viewers; others will find it has the power to make you swoon like crazy.
