Synopsis:
It's 1975 and when the winds of change are blowing over post-revolutionary Portugal. Al Berto (Ricardo Teixeira) returns to his small village after several years in Brussels, where he was trained as a painter. Settling illegally in a mansion that had been expropriated from his family during the revolution, young Al Berto begins to hang out with locals who share his interest in the arts and dream of a different life. Among them is the handsome João Maria (José Pimentão) - who will soon become Al Berto's lover. Soon Al Berto begins a counter-culture revolution that bewitches the towns youngsters but threatens the ideals of the most conservative locals.

Clash of Cultures - Al Berto review by KW

Spoiler Alert
31/07/2018

Interesting film about a native returning to his home town in post revolutionary Portugal and the emotions he unlocks in the young and resentment from those trying to adjust to the new world. At times I found it beginning to get clogged down, whilst on occasions it became vibrant with its opening of opportunities for the younger generation. In the end I found it watchable but felt that 19-25 minutes could have been cut from the film and still got the message across.
