One of the most important artists on the international film scene today, Portuguese director Pedro Costa has been steadily building an impressive body of work since the late eighties. And these are the three films that put him on the map: spare, painterly portraits of battered, largely immigrant lives in the slums of Fontainhas, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Lisbon. Hypnotic, controlled works, OSSOS, IN VANDA'S ROOM, and COLOSSAL YOUTH confirm Costa as a provocative new cinematic poet, one who locates beauty in the most unlikely of places.

Pedro Costa allows us to observe the lives of the poor of Fontainhas. It is, what it is. The hacking cough, daly drug use, mundane conversations, are repeated in different stages of family life in such poverty. The cinematography seems much to beautiful for this environment, black and white would seem more appropriate .One of the younger women in the first film is to beautiful for the part.We , as viewers, never get to leave this "ghetto". People leave for work , come home, but we stay ,with the constant coughing ,images of poverty so beautifully filmed.
