Movie Info

Paul Rocha's Change of Life, is a masterpiece of "sculpted reality," using fictional conceits and non-actors cast as themselves to create an ethnographic portrait of Furadouro, a remote Portuguese fishing village. The premise, about a soldier returning to a home changed in both subtle and obvious ways, serves as a pretext for Rocha to respectfully examine the specificities of Furadouro's people, their daily routines and rituals, and their evolving relationships with the village's history.
