Portuguese auteur Pedro Costa's beguiling film continues his exploration of the Lisbon slums and the characters that fill them. Our entry point is Ventura, an ageing local who wanders the halls of a dilapidated, prison-like hospital, meeting strangers, outsiders and ghosts. But we also venture out into the city in sequences that echo the menace and weird logic of nightmares. Striking imagery, home-grown music and an almost painfully intense central performance paint a haunting picture of a uniquely strange world.
