About

Row House Cinema presents Colossal Youth by Portuguese auteur Pedro Costa. Part of Poetry of Images week, 11/24-11/30: four stunning works in which the images are the essence of the film.

"'Colossal Youth' is something of a rarity...A work of cinematic art...Things happen, people talk, as in real life, but without the crutch of a plot." - Manohla Dargis, NY Times

Colossal Youth (2006)
-----------------------
Many of the lost souls of Ossos and In Vanda’s Room return in the spectral landscape of Colossal Youth, which brings to Pedro Costa’s Fontainhas films a new theatrical, tragic grandeur. This time, Costa focuses on Ventura, an elderly immigrant from Cape Verde living in a low-cost housing complex in Lisbon, who has been abandoned by his wife and spends his days visiting his neighbors, whom he considers his “children.” What results is a form of ghost story, a tale of derelict, dispossessed people living in the past and present at the same time, filmed by Costa with empathy and startling radiance.
