Doomed Love Um Amor de Perdição

A film by Mário Barroso with Tomás Alves, Patrícia Franco, Willion Brandão, Catarina Wallenstein

This could be the story of an encounter between Simão and Teresa, under the background of a conflict between two families of the Portuguese bourgeoisie ...


Simão is an almost childlike, lonely, uncompromising, narcissistic, destructive, suicidal teenager who attracts like a fatal aura or a black light most of the people he meets.


But does Teresa exist, or is she just an idea, an image, a reflection? Teresa is an apparition. A pretext for an amoral and violent revolt, for "Doomed Love".
