Por Ela is a comedy and a tragedy – it’s a bit like life!
We have everything to create a simple, but not simplistic, movie. The story created by Nuno Markl is about an unlikely and chaotic friendship between two rivals, and will make you laugh and cry at the same time. The cast will blow you away: it includes a popular comedian from TV and improvisational theatre (César Mourão), performing as you’ve never seen him perform before; it also includes an intense and versatile theatrical performer (Tónan Quito), and one of the most famous Portuguese singers (Ana Bacalhau) that, at the rhythm of many of her songs, interprets a lovely woman that becomes the main vertex of the most unlikely and original love triangle ever.
The director of Por Ela (Jorge Vaz Gomes) was bred on TV, cinema, videoclips, publicity, and is capable of an artistic sensitivity and sense of humour that follow both Ingmar Bergman and Judd Apatow. We think we can give you a movie that will amuse and thrill.
We believe that people that might like to watch this movie will make it possible by contributing with what they can. Cinema is made of the joint work of talented people – we only seek to pay them what they deserve that that is the help we ask of you. In exchange for your investment, small or large, we offer prizes, but we also offer what we think is most important: a quality movie that will make us all proud.

Henrique (César Mourão) and Pedro (Tónan Quito) have something in common: they are both in love with Luísa (Ana Bacalhau). Henrique, an easy-going and fun professor is going to marry her in a few days; Pedro, a handyman that is a bit of a rebel, angry with the world (and himself!), is her best friend since (high) school, but never had the guts to step forward like Henrique did. When one day she disappears from their lives, there is nothing left for them but to try and build a disastrous friendship based on the simple fact that no one else knows their sorrow... better than the other.
