ECCENTRICITIES OF A BLOND HAIR GIRL

Singularidades de uma rapariga loira

a film by :Manoel de Oliveira

Macário spends an entire train journey to the Algarve talking to a woman he does not know about the trials and tribulations of his love life: straight after starting his first job as a book keeper at his Uncle Francisco's warehouse in Lisbon he falls madly in love with a young blonde, who lives across the road. No sooner does he meet her than he straightaway wants to marry her. His uncle, totally opposed to the match, fires him and kicks him out of the house. Macário departs for Cape Verde where he makes his fortune. When he finally wins his uncle’s approval to marry his beloved, he discovers the “singularity” of his fiancée’s character.

French Synopsis :

Macário raconte à une inconnue qui voyage à ses côtés dans le train pour l’Algarve les tribulations de sa vie amoureuse. Tout juste embauché comme comptable dans l’entreprise de son oncle Francisco à Lisbonne, il tombe éperdument amoureux d’une jeune fille blonde, qui vit dans la maison de l’autre côté de la rue. Il fait sa connaissance et décide sur le champ de l’épouser. De façon inattendue, l’oncle Francisco s’y oppose catégoriquement et le chasse de chez lui. Macario réussit à faire fortune au Cap-Vert et finit par obtenir l’accord de son oncle pour le mariage. C’est alors qu’il découvre les singularités du caractère de sa fiancée.
