A bear is sighted somewhere in the northwest of Trás-os-Montes. The animal causes a natural uproar, but his existence seems to be called into question by some. With a sweet and fun register, Bruno Lourenço directs his second short film (after “Tony”, selected for Curtas’ National Competition in 2009). It should be highlighted that Lourenço is a frequent collaborator of Miguel Gomes and João Nicolau, and this “Oso” is also populated with lonely and melancholic characters, such as Rita, a nature watcher, and the specialist who comes to try and find the famous animal. With a comic-ethnographic register, the film is as much a tale about encounters as a peripheral inventory of the places we commonly call “deep Portugal”. (DR)
