Invested with elements of magic realism, Found Memories (“Stories only exist when remembered”) is a fable set in a forgotten town steeped in a forgotten time. Every morning, Madalena makes bread for Antonio’s old coffee shop, crosses the railways where no trains have passed for years, cleans the cemetery gate, and listens to the priest’s sermon before sharing lunch with the other old villagers. Clinging to the image of her dead husband and living in her memories, Madalena is awakened by the arrival of Rita, a young photographer attracted to a ghost village where time seems to have stopped. They forge a deep relationship, which builds to have a profound effect on both of their lives, as well as on the rest of the aging villagers. “A gentle, poetic film in which one can delight in getting lost, if just for a little while.”—Toronto International Film Festival (98 mins.)
