Ponto Morto

Rita Só in Ponto Morto by André GodinhoPONTO MORTO / IDLE ROAD, 2014, 33′

A young couple hit the road for a romantic holiday. They find a car that has been hit and a dead woman on the side of the road. The couple is not that young. In fact they are actors on a film. 2 production assistants try to leave the set but all the roads seem to hit the same spot: the set, where they find a dead woman that can walk.

PONTO MORTO is a road movie that deals with narrative gimmicks and the codes of film genres. A mutant story line that transforms the structure of the road movie in a wandering zombie movie.
