This Side of Resurrection

Joaquim Sapinho

Drama / 118min / 2011





Inês finds out her brother came back from Australia. She wants to be a surfer like him so she runs away from home. Rafael surfs at Guincho like he wants to die. Surfing no longer matters to him, only the sky, as if he searched for it underwater.

Inês realizes that, despite what her mother said, her brother was in a convent, and that he is returning.

She has no one to stay with her at Guincho. Returning home to her mother and back to school, she feels lost. She can't live like she used to anymore. At the convent, Rafael can't find the peace he was looking for and he's still at this side of Resurrection. Their mother doesn't know, but she is truly the one who has reached the limit. Perhaps are the limits what holds a family together?
