Synopsis

Vera and João are young and in love, and their desire forces them to run away from their friends and home. Isolated in a forest, they promise to never leave each other’s side. But one day, Vera falls ill and João must go and ask for help. The unshakable faith in their amorous bond is about to break.

Our take

Rita Azevedo Gomes’ serene sophomore feature is a strikingly stylized, fable-like story of impossible young love. Impeccably crafted, Fragile as the World is both rigorous and delicate, formalist and atmospheric, oscillating poetically between black and white and color.],[
