Director’s Note

Life isn’t always easy, my friends! In July 2006, there was a minor catastrophe. Shooting of the film, scheduled for the following month, had to be postponed indefinitely. Production funds were short for a demanding screenplay, due to be shot in Portugal’s interior during the August fiestas, and the directors casting choices.

Quickly getting over that shock, the director decided to set off for the location anyway, with a 16mm camera and a crew of five – small but feisty! – and film everything he deemed worthy of recording, committing himself to rejigging the fiction accordingly. This story and those that follow it can be found in the film, although for the sake of truth it must be acknowledged that appearances are deceptive and that certain directors have an inherent inclination towards mystification.

Documentary? Fiction? Halfway through this film there’s a bridge: the Roman bridge at Coja over the River Alva, from which Paulo “Moleiro” (Miller) hurls himself. Without wishing to sound like Confucius, I would say that from either one of the riverbanks the bridge unites, the other is perfectly visible. And the river is always the same.
