João César Monteiro – O Utimo Mergulho AKA The Last Dive (1992)

What young Samuel (Dinis Neto Jorge) was doing at that time of night on the deserted quay, nobody will ever know for sure. In fact, when Mr. Eloi (Henrique Canto e Castro), an old retired sailor, approached him, he was staring at the waters of the Tagus. Tired as he was of his days, Mr. Eloi could not have thought any other way: Samuel was there to put an end to his life. And when Samuel, symbolically or not, invites him to share his last dive, Eloi, as a last resort, stops him from throwing himself in the river and, saying that Heaven can wait, takes him on a tour of the city. So the two characters go off for two long nights of roving during the Saint Anthony festivities.

In a night club they meet Esperança (Fabienne Babe), a dumb prostitute who
is Eloi’s daughter and two other ladies of the night – Rosa Bianca (Francesca Prandi) and Ivone (Rita Blanco). The friendship that grows between them is sealed in a boarding house of ill-repute. Young Samuel discovers love. The Tagus no longer inspires him. From now on he prefers Esperança’s charms. Finally, Eloi throws himself to the Tagus; Rosa Bianca joins a Russian ship; Ivone follows her lot, Esperança and Samuel find themselves in an idyllic world “là-bas je ne sais où”.
