見過世面的積克年近63,髮型似貓王,衣着似獨行殺手,而他退休前的「最後任務」,是要尋找合適的僱主為他在文件上蓋章,以獲取失業援助金。積克的故事表面看似平凡,卻道盡葡萄牙上一代人的無奈。

他早年為逃避獨裁政權而遠走美國,在當地開車謀生,載過的乘客包括拳王阿里、甘乃迪夫人,但勞碌半生,回到家鄉,可有甚麼倚靠?導演Susana Nobre用富戲劇感的拍攝手法,紀錄這個「講古佬」的豐富經歷,讓觀眾在窺見男人的浪漫之餘,亦感同身受其現實的懊惱。

A man of many adventures, Joaquim (aka Jack) is a driver with one last unglamorous mission before his retirement—getting stamps on his documents at potential employers in order to collect unemployment. With his Elvis-like hair and leather jacket/trench coat attire, it is easy to confuse this blue-collar worker with an aging hit man from a bygone era of cinema. Joaquim’s stories are that of a common man—plying his trade at an aircraft plant, seeking a better life in the US, and returning to Portugal without a fortune.

Juxtaposing the subject’s mild-mannered recollection with gorgeous cinematography and docufiction set pieces, director Susana Nobre paints a melancholic picture of a generation that has survived dictatorship only to be squeezed by today’s economic reality.
