EMBARGO

PORTUGAL/SPAIN/BRAZIL

2010

80 min

Drama/Comedy

By António Ferreira

Inspired by the Nobel Prize winner Saramago

Embargo tells the story of Nuno, a man who works in a sandwich stand, but who is also the man who invented a machine which promises to revolutionize the shoe industry. In a time of a petrol embargo, Nuno finds himself in a sinister situation. Blinded by the promise of success and his obsession with achieving his goals in life, he tries desperately to sell his machine. He is mysteriously trapped in his own car and misses the once in a lifetime opportunity to finally present this invention to the world and his life is suddenly embargoed…

Embargo encloses the same kind of dark comedy you can find in the Cohen brother’s films. The type of subtle yet powerfull humour that will reach out to everyone.

The film is based on a short story with the same title by the winner of the Nobel Prize in literature - José Saramago - the author of Blimunda and Blindness. António Ferreira has created a portuguese film that is warm, comical and so comfortably peculiar.
