Hortense e os Outros Hortense and the Others

12′ animated short film by Alice Guimarães and Mónica Santos


Hortense’s story is built like a cooking book: each boyfriend is a recipe. When travelling through her love affairs we can see how people’s relationships resemble our connection to food. Hortense falls in love quite often, for food/people that look different but all those meals end up, invariably in disappointment.

At the end, Hortense gathers several ingredients from past relationships and can finally taste a good meal with her perfect man.
