International Feature Film Competition

What would you do if your best friend desperately needed a bed in a crowded hospital to survive? Would you kick someone out? Pedro not only faces the dilemma of how to help his friend, but one night, he also decides to assist Jean, a criminal who is on the run, by offering him refuge in his home. Who cares if Pedro is seventy and Jean is barely thirty? Passion spiced up by the fear of loneliness will find its way. The dream to turn into Greta Garbo finally comes true for Pedro. This Brazilian melodrama about love doomed to a dramatic end is a surprising adaptation of a comedy play from the 1970s. The film was successfully presented at this year's Berlinale in the Panorama section, and was nominated for the prestigious Teddy Award.
