One of the most talked about films of the last Cannes Film Festival, Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights channels over three features the current struggles of economically depressed Portugal through an assortment of tales that range from farcical yarns to grounded accounts of social issues. Volume 1, The Restless One, opens with Gomes attempting to shoot a documentary, which spins into a satirical tale about the financial powers-that-be preying on Portugal’s vulnerability.
