O Testamento do Senhor Napumoceno is an epic tale of one of the world’s least known but most culturally complex societies: Cape Verde. This classic account of the hollowness of provincial bourgeois life introduces English-speaking audiences to German Almeida, one of the outstanding writers in Portuguese today. ¬†Featuring the beautiful morna music of Tito Paris and Cesaria Evora, this film vividly evokes the character, humor, and pace of life of Cape Verde.
