Description

April 4- Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain


Um Filme Falado (A Talking Picture)

In 2001, a young history professor embarks on a cruise with her daughter from Lisbon to Bombay. Through several cities where the cruise stops, she visits for the first time the birthplaces of civilization she spoke about in her classes.

The trip through Ceuta, Marseilles, Pompeii, Athens, the pyramids of Egypt and Istanbul is also a journey through the Mediterranean civilization and an evocation of all that decisively marked our Western culture.

On this cruise, she will meet three women: a French businesswoman (Catherine Deneuve); a famous Italian model (Stefania Sandrelli); a Greek singer (Irene Papas); and especially the commander of the ship, a Polish-American (John Malkovich).

On the way to a port in the Persian Gulf, a strange threat disturbs the cruise and threatens the ship and the life of the passengers.
