If on a foggy night a blonde woman. This is not exactly how Italo Calvino’s novel begins, but it’s how this meeting between the woman and two young men in a garden somewhere, on the outskirts of a city, begins.

In an unknown suburban neighbourhood, with a nocturnal environment of artificial suspension, in between the fog and a mystery inducing soundtrack, comes a blonde woman that carries an inscrutable existential melancholy, like a movie star from the golden times. She walks home alone and the film follows her with fascination and intrigue, with each chance meeting. The atmospheric flirtation between melodrama and suspense, in a declared homage to classic american cinema. The film plays cunningly with our expectation of danger or seduction in each corner and tells us we need to see beyond what the eye meets…(Susana Santos Rodrigues)
