Adapted from a 19th-century novella by Eça de Queiroz, Manoel de Oliveira’s exquisite film is the story of an ill-fated romance between a young accountant and a mysterious woman he spies through his window.

Our take

A small masterpiece from one of cinema’s great miniaturists, this exquisite short feature by Manoel de Oliveira is based on based on the short story by Portuguese writer Eça de Queirós. This sumptuous tale honors the sublime ardor and mysteries of love, unraveling the true image behind the fantasy.
