Synopsis

A journey through the Portugese city of Oporto, as seen through the memories of film director Manoel de Oliveira. The city of his birth, Oporto had already inspired his first film, "Douro, faina fluvial" in 1931, and the one that marked his return behind the camera in 1956, "O pintor e a cidade". Now de Oliveira shows us the city that doesn't exist anymore, what only the eyes of memory can still see: through memories, footprints, testimonies, song lyrics and photographs.
