The final film in Pedro Costa's Fontainhas trilogy, Colossal Youth chronicles the last days of this downtrodden Lisbon neighbourhood.
An intimate epic wherein present and past move as one, the film follows Ventura, a towering Cape Verdean who has assumed the role of surrogate “father” to an untold number of characters around Lisbon and Fontainhas. Through Ventura’s ghost-like visitations to figures such as Vanda Duarte (the central figure in Costa’s earlier In Vanda’s Room and repeated recollections of his past life as a newly migrated labourer, Costa explores the nature and necessity of storytelling in the course of the human adventure.
