Lisbon, 1938. Under Salazar’s dictatorial regime, the senior editor of the cultural page of the newspaper “Lisboa” Dr. Pereira (Marcello Mastroianni) lives in the ivory tower of his own culture and memories, almost ignoring the country’s dramatic political situation: his main interlocutor, in the days and nights of solitude, is the photograph of his much-loved wife, who died a few years earlier. But the encounter with the young communist Monteiro Rossi (Stefano Dionisi) and his girlfriend (Nicoletta Braschi) will change his life forever. David di Donatello for best actor to Marcello Mastroianni.
