As part of the Boston Portuguese Festival, Belmont World Film is pleased to present the North American premiere of a film so new that it doesn't even have a title in English yet!
This love letter to Lisbon tells the story of an 18 year-old with a complicated life and a burgeoning criminal career who ends up on the rooftop of a widowed woman's apartment in Lisbon. Against all odds and her family's advice, the woman takes in the troubled boy. An enjoyable film that also examines issues facing two different generations in today's society. Includes a complimentary pasteis de nata, a Portuguese pastry.
