Act of Affection (An)

Country: Portugal | Vietnam, Language: English, 16 mins

  • Director: Viet Vu

CGiii Comment

A rather affecting film...in an odd and gentle sort of way.

This is about loneliness...and, perhaps, regret.

The 'oddness' is...how those feelings can disappear [temporarily] with one small gesture...of affection.


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

While making a portrait of a single gay man in Lisbon, a Vietnamese filmmaker offers his character a little gift from the bottom of his heart. This is a film about the act of filming.
