The Death of Carlos Gardel (A Morte de Carlos Gardel) (2011, 82 min), by Solveig Nordlund – is a tragic family drama set in a world of tango and drug addiction.
Nuno is the son of divorced parents. He lives a nomadic existence with his father: he lost all his friends and never stays long enough anywhere to make new friends. Now Nuno has become a drug addict, he’s in hospital, in a coma struggling between life and death. His father and his father’s sister remain by his bedside. The three separately evoke requests from the past and other characters they meet also complement their current life experiences and memories. Based on the novel by António Lobo Antunes.
