Palácios de Pena
by Gabriel Abrantes & Daniel Schmidt, 2011
– I hate grandma’s house. I hate Grandma. I hate Portugal. And I hate Ana.
A radically stylized, era and genre scrambling amalgam of coming-of-age melodrama, medieval pageant, and political allegory. Two teenage sisters cope with the death of their grandmother, their long-standing rivalry, and their inheritance of an immense castle with a shadowy Fascist past.
