The Strange Case of Angelica

Original Title: O Estranho Caso de Angélica

Isaac is a young photographer living in a boarding house in Régua. In the middle of the night, he receives an urgent call from a wealthy family to come and take the final photograph of their daughter, Angelica, who died just a few days after her wedding.

When he arrives at the family home, Isaac gets his first glimpse of Angelica and is overwhelmed by her beauty. As soon as he looks at her through the lens of his camera, the young woman appears to come back to life just for him. Isaac instantly falls in love with her. From that moment on, Angelica becomes his obsession, until he reaches the point of exhaustion.
