    • Synopsis
    • Two narratives lines go together in the movie. Sometimes parallel, sometimes intersecting, but one always completes the other.
      The first one is a ficcional representation of the imaginary, the sensations, the impulse of Ana Thereza while she is writing on the garden benches.
      The second one is the real world perception, through
      thinkers and artists statements, of their vision of “Desire." In winter Paris we find Ana Thereza writing on garden
      benches, her old acquaintances.
      The habit of writing on garden benches started in her
      youth when besides taking care of her young daughters,
      she also took care of her husband, who suffered from an
      incurable disease, until he died.
      For five years, her routine from home to hospital to
      home again was broken only when a bench on a square
      was in the middle of her way. It was there that she
      unloaded her anxieties by writing, hoping to organize
      ideas and quiet her soul.
      And so it is writing that Ana Thereza plunges into her
      inmost thoughts and tries to understand this desire that
      overwhelms her into a moment of life where everything
      seems established and balanced.
