In the present article, I consider five different relations between character and landscape/setting in the context of Portuguese cinema produced between the 1960s and the 2000s. To achieve this, I examine ten Portuguese films produced between 1963 and 2009. Through a close analysis of these ten films, I show how landscape serves to project, within a particular current of Portuguese cinema, both social and historical grounds into an aesthetic dimension.
