"[The film] is a charming portrait of the highly regarded Catalonian museologist Ignasi Millet Bonaventura. Rather than focusing on his professional expertise in the worlds of art and preservation, however, the film simply follows its motormouthed subject around as he breathlessly converses with family members, friends and colleagues on whatever comes to mind, spreading an atmosphere of screwball chaos in his wake."--Variety.com, viewed November 25, 2014.

Miguel Gomes directs this romantic drama, which pays homage to the silent films of F.W. Murnau and Robert J. Flaherty. Filmed in black and white, the film is divided into two parts, the first half takes up the story from the point of view of Pilar (Teresa Madruga), a middle-aged political activist whose neighbour Aurora (Laura Soveral) is a senile old lady with a gambling addiction and a propensity to tell colourful tales about her past in Mozambique. As Aurora's health starts to decline, she asks Pilar, her deceased neighbor's maid, to track down a man called Ventura (Henrique Espírito Santo), with whom she had a passionate affair as a newly-married young woman. The second part of the film details the affair between the beautiful young Aurora (Ana Moreira) and her Portuguese lover (Carloto Cotta), revealing their secret passion that unfolded in Africa in her past life as a farm owner at the foothill of Mount Tabu in Africa over half a century previously.

Details the role played by the Spanish and French governments, in fostering and supporting a wave of terrorist activity to suppress the ETA, the Basque Separatist movement. Following an attempted right-wing coup in 1981 that tried to topple Spain's new, democratically elected Socialist government, key Spanish government officials secretly formed the GAL, an organization whose purpose was to attack ETA using similar methods of violence and terror. After a pivotal meeting with then-President Francois Mitterrand, Spain received the support it needed when France agreed to assist the GAL in their operations. Concentrating on the French Basque country --a sanctuary for many of ETA's members-- GAL actions were directed by Spanish government officials, deploying hired mercenaries to carry out bombings, kidnappings and assassinations with the compliance and assistance of the French police. Through interviews with government officials, judicial officials and prosecutors, journalists, and the families of victims - and incorporating rare archival footage --the director conducts a methodical investigation into the Anti-Terrorist Liberation Group (GAL). The film includes important background information on the rise of ETA and the Basque Separatist movement, the social and political strains that led to the formation of the GAL, and eventually the developments that led to its fall.
