From Portugal, the 2017 romance Amor Amor is directed and co-written by Jorge Cramez.

It stars Jorge Freitas as Jorge (lots of Jorges here!), a manipulative and self-centered photographer who feels stuck in his long relationship with Marta (Ana Moreira). Head over heels in love with him, Marta is also the new object of desire of Jorge’s friend, Carlos (Nuno Casanovas), who also happens to be in a relationship with Ana’s best friend, the cynical Lígia (Margarida Vila-Nova). Lígia’s romantic younger brother Bruno (Guilherme Moura) is also infatuated with Marta. Let’s call it a love pentagon…

A loose adaptation of Pierre Corneille’s 17th-century play La Place Royale, Amor Amor was nominated for the Grand Jury Award at IndieLisboa, while co-star Ana Moreira was also nominated for “Best Actress” at the 2019 Portuguese Autores Awards.
