It comes from France, where he spent several years and his return is motivated by revenge and trauma. we talk about miss you (1987), by Fernando Lopes, where the theme of emigration takes a turn. It was as if, years later, we were seeing the remains and traces of those who existed in a certain cinema of the 1970s, as in Behind-the-hills (1976), by António Reis and Margarida Cordeiro, a film full of specters, of those who emigrated to have a better life; or even, even earlier, that desire to get out that flowed from the mouths of Paulo Rocha’s protagonists (Green Years, 1963; or Change life, 1966).
