MORAL ORDER, directed by Mário Barroso, will be released in French theatres on September 30th. Produced by Paulo Branco, the film stars Maria de Medeiros in the role of Maria Adelaide Coelho da Cunha, a free woman who fought against the moralist and punitive campaign she was subjected to at the beginning of the last century in Portugal.
Mário Barroso, after more than four decades devoted to the seventh art, is considered one of the best and most famous Portuguese directors of photography, having worked with renowned directors such as Manoel de Oliveira, João César Monteiro, Raoul Ruiz, José Fonseca e Costa, and Jean-Claude Biette, among others. Moral Order is his third feature film as a director, after The Miracle according to Salome (2004) and Um Amor de perdiçao (2009).
From September 30th, the film will be shown in many cinemas (see the calendar below).
After its Portuguese (on September 10th) and French releases, the film begins its international journey and has already been selected for the Tokyo International Film Festival, the São Paulo International Film Festival and the Valencia Mostra.
