Cape Verde author Germano Almeida wrote the novel (Mr. Napumoceno's Last Will and Testament) that provides the source for this Portuguese-Brazilian-Cape Verdean-French-Belgium co-production. After a wealthy, unmarried businessman dies and the will is read, his nephew learns that he receives nothing. Instead, the estate goes to a servant's daughter. In flashbacks, the young woman then learns about her father as the story recounts his past life and loves. Francisco Manso shot this Portuguese-language film in Cape Verde. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As a meditation on life and the choices one makes, Testamento is touching, ably helped by [Nelson] Xavier's wry performance."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Variety
