    Vitalina Varela

    Vitalina Varela is the newest film from Portuguese art house director Pedro Costa. It’s about a woman who came from Cape Verde, an island nation off the coast of West Africa, to Portugal in the aftermath of her husband’s death. However, the story doesn’t even begin to do the film justice.
