And now for something completely different. Joao Nicolau’s highly original musical offers a cocktail of deadpan comedy, romantic longing and plaintive crooning that marches to its own defiantly idiosyncratic beat. Nonprofessional actor Miguel Lobo Antunes is a natural born charmer as Luis, a travelling salesman who has reached the end of the line. New technology befuddles him, proper invoices rarely trouble him and retirement seems only a matter of time. He keeps going with a song on his lips and the conviction he may yet rekindle an old romance with hotel receptionist Lucinda.

Also screening on Mon 2 Mar, 8.15pm
