The last film made by the mad, magnificent Monteiro, who died in February 2003 leaving Portuguese cinema much the poorer. This is a typically eccentric, slow moving comedy of manners with the director himself as (again) an erudite, lecherous sophist, here given to taking leisurely bus rides around Lisbon and interviewing young lovelies about coming to clean his flat. It all gets even weirder as the film proceeds to an unexpectedly moving final hour - but be warned: Monteiro's not for those who like their movies lucid.
