Like O Fantasma, the previous feature by Joao Pedro Rodrigues of Portugal, this 2005 drama is a dark love story exploring the connection between the sexual and the spectral. Ana Cristina de Oliveira plays the title character, a roller-skating price checker at a supermarket who breaks up with her boyfriend because he doesn’t want children. In her despair she’s drawn into an uneasy friendship with a young gay man (Nuno Gil) who recently lost his lover in a car accident, and before long the neurotic woman begins to develop a morbid fascination with the deceased. In Portuguese with subtitles. 101 min.
