Vitor Goncalves's first feature is a tale of disillusionment: after an aimless summer, Isabel (Isabel Galhardo) returns to her father's house and begins to contemplate a romantic involvement with Diogo (Diogo Doria), a radio director who directs her father's scripts, but nothing much happens. Despite effusive praise for this film by Manoel de Oliveira, Portugal's premier filmmaker, I was rather disillusioned along with the heroine; while the filmmaking itself is graceful and subtle in its handling of moods, the script left me feeling undernourished.
