Storyline

'Duarte de Almeida', director of the Portuguese National Film Archives [deceased in 2009], interviews the dean of contemporaneous film directors [96-years-old then]. Two humanists of different philosophical backgrounds, both with their long, entire lives dedicated to culture in general (music, painting, literature) and to film in particular, discuss freely, sometimes haltingly, the director's power as a creator or a magician, the philosophy beyond particular scenes in classic movies, film technique, the importance of color, sound and music to films, art versus entertainment, and much more. Their talk takes place in a museum room, seating in front of "The Annunciation" (a 1510 oil painting by João Vaz, a Portuguese artist), which eventually leads to a discussion of 'Leonardo da Vinci', and the relationship between a trend-setter master and his disciples.

Trivia

In May 20, 2006, a commemorative day in the French concept of "La Nuit des Musées", the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, Lisbon, was open all night long, and in the auditorium the film was shown at 21:30 p.m. The direct link between this contemporary art museum and the film is that it was used as location, and the 16th century painting "The Annunciation" was used as background, and also briefly discussed in the film.
