Recently honored with a 2019 Retrospective at Rotterdam, Edgar Pêra, the single greatest unknown master of modern Portuguese cinema, offers his latest and perhaps greatest psychedelic masterpiece. Unfolding on the day and night of his 21-year-old daughter’s wedding to a rich man her own age, Raymond (played French cinema icon, Dominque Pinon) will endure 24 hours of humiliation. For the 60- something author of films and comics, “Money isn’t Everything”, as indeed he has none, and is financially dependent upon his wife. A kaleidoscope journey in a city amidst civil war and an authoritarian regime that is about to be established. And as the city collapses - so do his internal convictions.
