Though he first came to international attention for his third feature Tabu, Portuguese fabulist Miguel Gomes’s debut is as deliriously imaginative and captivatingly strange as anything he’s concocted since. A loopy, anything-goes take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Face You Deserve unfolds in two equally oddball parts: the first an absurdist musical in which a self-absorbed sad sack celebrates a very unhappy 30th birthday, the second a magical-realist fairy tale involving seven eccentric men living together in a state of suspended childhood. As the two tales wind together, what emerges is a playful, poignant, and mysterious reflection on the bitter realities of adulthood and the eternal wonder of youth.
