Eccentric Melodies


Miguel Gomes | Portugal | 2004 | 108 min.
V.O. Portuguese subtitled in Spanish and English
A cara que mereces

With his dazzling debut feature, Miguel Gomes revealed himself as one of the names that would mark the future of European cinema, promising unlimited doses of originality and good humour. In this hilarious musical-comedy Francisco, a man on the verge of claustrophobia and a 30-year-old crisis, tries by all means to escape from maturity. “Up to your 30s, you have the face God has given you. After that you get the face you deserve”. This unsympathetic  protagonist will become the atypical Snow White of his seven dwarfs, the friends with whom he celebrates his birthday in a country house.
