Corte de Cabelo

Joaquim Sapinho Portugal, 1995

Dada Kubin's rating of the film Haircut

The golden 90s, these neoromantics with short hair: the search for personal identity in a free world, longing for the impulsive, transgressive love which is worth nothing if it doesn’t drive you crazy. Haircut asks: who am I to you, and when is your love enough? It was great being young in the 90s, despite the racist skinheads that seem to have plagued Portugal as well as Finland, the diagonal extremes of Europe.
