Summary "Portuguese director Pedro Costa has been steadily building an impressive body of work since the late eighties, and these are the three films that put him on the map: spare, painterly portraits of battered, largely immigrant lives in the slums of Fontainhas, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Lisbon. In Ossos, after a suicidal teenage girl gives birth, she misguidedly entrusts her baby's safety to the troubled, deadbeat father. In Vanda's Room is centered around the heroin-addicted Vanda Duarte. In Colossal youth, many of the lost souls of Ossos and In Vanda's Room return. This time, Costa focuses on Ventura, an elderly immigrant from Cape Verde living in Lisbon."--Distributor.
