Our second Film Night of 2013 will show "Five Days, Five Nights", a film made by José Fonseca e Costa and was released the 25th of April 1996.
Join us celebrating the film's 17th year on our next movie night.
Synopsis: "Five Days, Five Nights" is an excellent film adaptation of the novel by Alvaro Cunhal written under the pseudonym Manuel Tiago on the odyssey of a young runaway who in the late 40's is forced to cross the border in the company of a smuggler. José Fonseca e Costa signs a film smart and sensitive, it is above all a subtle evocation of a country dominated by a regime that has forced many to escape and exile, as well as a fascinating story of friendship between two men from different universes that in the midst of adversity eventually discover a mutual admiration. A beautiful film from Fonseca e Costa with a great work of photography from Affonso Beato and two excellent performances in charge of Vitor Norte and Paulo Vitor Pires.
