A Viagem
The Voyage

  1. Overview
  2. Awards
  3. Fact Sheet

A recapitulation of the arrival of the Portuguese in XVI century Japan. An encounter of two opposed civilizations; distorted, amused and sometimes worrying views, a frantic world somewhere between history and legend, farce and drama, painting and reality. The aesthetic side of the film is inspired from Japanese screens.
