Movie Info

A three-hour drama about the daily existence of a drug addict living in a Lisbon slum, In Vanda's Room centers on the 30-something Vanda who, when she isn't selling vegetables, spends most of her time consuming enormous quantities of drugs and engaging in long, ponderous conversations with her sister Zita. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

The whole neighborhood seems subterranean, shrouded even during daytime in a sepulchral darkness that sunlight pierces like a headache; from its depths, the residents are gasping for air.
