Foreign trailer for Eccentricities of a Blond Hair Girl, which screened at the 2009 Vancouver International Film Festival.
"'Romance," says Ricardo Trêpa in Manoel de Oliveira's Eccentricities of a Blond Hair Girl, 'begins in art and reality.' Begins... and ends, you might say, as his reality is an economic reality. Like a character in an 18th century novel, Trêpa is bound by social rules dictating just what kind of young man may be, how shall we say, romantic; that is, propose marriage. And when Trêpa falls in love with the blond girl (Catarina Wallenstein) he spies in the window across the street, he is certain that while the image of the girl may be art itself, his unemployment makes the reality of romance impossible.
