(Portugal, 2004, 103 min)

The futile top model protegée of an aging fashion designer is forced by circumstances to come into her own as a woman of the world. Intriguing but ultimately incomplete, amateurish melodrama from a director who ought to know better; there’s a strong woman’s picture plot and great performances lost in incomprehensible plotting, inept handling and poor photography (shot on digital video).
