synopsis :

In Portugal — a European country in crisis — a film director proposes to build fictional stories from the miserable reality he is immersed in. However, failing to find meaning in his work, he cowardly runs away and leaves the beautiful Scheherazade to stand in his shoes.

This film is not an adaptation of Scheherazade’s famous tales, simply a work using the same structure and adapted it to modern life in Portugal. It’s not a documentary either, though it feels like one in places, between the narration and Gomes’ realist, observational style.

Di Portugal, seorang sutradara mengagas ide cerita fiktif dari realita kehidupan yang menyedihkan yang di alaminya.  Akan tetapi, karena gagal menemukan arti dalam pekerjaannya, ia melarikan diri dan meninggalkan Scheherazade sendirian.

Film ini tidak di adaptasi dari cerita legenda terkenal Scheherazade,hanya  menggunakan struktur yang sama dan diadaptasi di kehidupan modern di Portugal. Walaupun bukan film dokumenter, tapi terasa seperti dokumenter, antara narasi dan realita, gaya observasi.

reviews

The second installment of Miguel Gomes’ opus may be austerity-themed, but it’s a sensual and intellectual feast.
