Movie Review

O Delfim (2002)

The film I watched was a Portugal movie – O Delfim (The Dauphin) Directed by Jose Cardoso Pires, Trailer can be seen here. The story happens in 1960s Portugal near a lagoon and lands around is owned by the movie’s protagonist. The actual storyline is a cliché, it is about infidelity and resulting murder(s). The lagoon is serene, and the village with its few streets is shown beautifully. The storytelling of going back and forth between the present and what happened a year before adds a bit of suspense to the otherwise simple story.

In one of the scenes, I was surprised to see WD-40 (the water repellent spray used to keep locks/gears smooth) in the Rifle carrying case used by the narrator.
