A disquieting epilogue converts Costa's Fontainhas trilogy about displaced Cape Verdeans into a reflective quartet. Ventura, the real-life anchor of Colossal Youth, returns as an old man, trapped in a world of illness, decaying urban landscapes and the ghosts of memories of war and life. Yet, these dialogues are not simply melancholic: Costa mixes in life, family and music. The whole becomes a powerful meditation on life and trauma in the post-colonial world, a virtuoso display of Costa as cinematic master.
