Uma Rapariga no Verão

(Portugal, 1986, 80 minutes)

A confused young girl leaves the boyfriend who pines for her but they seem to be unable to get away from each other. No-budget drama shot in 16mm, barely released at the time of its production and as confused as its main characters; more interesting as a time capsule of the visual and narrative strategies of the mid 1980s than as a feature in its own right.
