Eccentricities of a Blonde-haired Girl, DVD



Romantic drama by Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira, who was 100 years old at the time of filming.

Ricardo Trepa stars as Macario, a Lisbon office worker who becomes infatuated with a mysterious blonde girl holding a fan whom he spies in the window opposite his workplace.

When he is finally introduced to Luisa (Catarina Wallerstein), he wins her over with surprising ease - but his uncle's unexplained opposition to the pairing leads to him being sent away to the Cape Verde islands, where he soon makes a great fortune.

When he returns to Luisa, however, he discovers a grave flaw in her character that renders her unworthy of his love.
