Rate this:
Staff in one hand, stereo in the other, Hermino is the epitome of a man caught between two worlds. At 27, he is the youngest shepherd in this rural Portuguese valley, practicing a lonely, arduous profession that few now are willing to learn. But on Saturday nights Hermino relaxes with friends at a party in town, switching Portuguese folk music for imported rock. This intimate film brings viewers into the almost-lost world of traditional shepherding, laying bare the efforts of Hermino and his neighbors to balance or choose between the old ways and the new.
