AMADEO

2020 • DRAMA / HISTORY

Feature by Vicente Alves do Ó

Portugal

In 2016 at the Grand Palais in Paris, an exhibition about Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso rediscovers him as one of the greatest painters of modern art. But who was Amadeo? Born in a little town called Amarante in the North of Portugal, Amadeo was a man who died before its time, taken by the Spanish Flu at the beginning of the 20th century. Friends with Fernando Pessoa and Pablo Picasso, Amadeo plunges in a portrait of creativity. While living in Paris, he meets his future wife, Lucie, an italian girl that will follow him back to Portugal. Back in his hometown, Lucie and Amadeo together must face his greatest challenge ever: to continue his work without the inspiring movement of the city of lights.
