The latest from Portuguese master Pedro Costa continues his cycle of profound, visually sublime works set in the immigrant community of Fontainhas. Vitalina Varela—played by the extraordinary non-professional actress of the same name—arrives in Portugal from Cape Verde to attend the funeral of her husband, who left her 25 years earlier. There she confronts both her grief and the specter of the past, an emotional journey through time and memory rendered in stunning, painterly images worthy of Rembrandt.
