(Portugal, 2005, 100 minutes)

In 1970s Lisbon, the daughter of a wealthy entrepreneur realises that she will never be fully accepted by her peers and by society because of her mixed-blood heritage. An interesting period melodrama and some good acting and period reconstruction is sadly wasted in anonymous, uninspired handling and rote, by-the-book scripting.
