THE CHILD (A CRIANÇA) arrives at Portuguese theatres on September 23rd
THE CHILD (A CRIANÇA) is the first film by Marguerite de Hillerin and Félix Dutilloy-Liégeois. It premieres in Portugal on September 23rd. With a script written by the directors and freely adapted from the short story Der Findling (trans. The Orphan) by Heinrich von Kleist, the story takes place near Lisbon, in the mid-16th century. Bela, an adopted young man, tries to find his place in a family that is free, but cloistered in a world where shadows have the clarity of imperfections. Here, everything leads to disaster.
