“All sorts of nonfiction and fiction stories woven together in a tapestry of frustration, melancholy and burlesque”~Jay Weissberg , Variety

Aroview: Wildly original and ambitious triptych of films set in modern-day Portugal but structured on the sprawling Arabic fairy-tale collection One Thousand and One Nights.

Director Gomes (TABU) is one of the most distinctive modern auteurs, and here he applies his eccentric aesthetic to highly topical and weighty themes such as the current economic crisis and Pro-austerity European politics - but never at the expense of some glorious humour.
