Movie Info

Writer/director Alberto Seixas Santos creates this episodic film about contemporary life in Lisbon. The main plot concerns an Irish woman, Cathy (Pauline Cadell), who dearly loves her Portuguese lawyer husband, Pedro (Rui Morisson); however, unbeknownst to her, he engages in one tryst after another. Cathy soon finds herself trying to help a young delinquent get off heroin, while the youth's desperate mother joins a weird religious cult. In other segments, an elderly man is nearly driven mad with grief at the loss of his granddaughter in a train station, while a down-and-out jeweler ushers the young girl to a hotel room. Mal was screened at the 1999 Venice Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
