Porto of My Childhood

A Feature film by Manoel de Oliveira

Release in France : 23/01/2002

    Synopsis

    His family home has disappeared, the hanging tree has disappeared, and so have the candy stores, the Crystal Palace, and Guilhermina, his cousin and first love.
    This film brings to life memories from Manoel de Oliveira’s childhood. Manoel, a teenager (performed by the director’s own grandson), watches an opera from his parents’ theater booth. The boy sees what he will be eighty years later, the Manoel he is now, playing the part of an actor from the 20s, Estevào Amarante, who in turn plays the part of a thief who steals a woman’s heart…
