Synopsis

A photographer is asked by hotel owners to take portraits of their recently deceased daughter Angélica. When he looks at her through the lens of his camera, she appears to come back to life just for him. He instantly falls in love with her. From that moment on, Angélica will haunt him…

Our take

One of the last films in the legendary Manoel de Oliveira’s erudite and richly rewarding filmography is a haunted love story very close to his heart. Written in the Portuguese director’s youth but directed in old age, the film combines romance and fear, photography and truth, and life and death.
