  1. Are you sure that the movie is from the 1950s? I ask this because there is
    a detail of a building that I know for sure that was opened on September,
    1966 and it already appears almost finished (or it seems to) in the movie.

    This is great. I was born in 1974 and never imagined how my home city was
    before I was born. I only know some black and white pictures and not much
    else. Probably I have never researched on this subject. I find the movie
    with very good quality and the colors seem to reflect accurate the mood in
    Lisbon. One interesting thing, the yellow electric vehicles are exactly how
    I knew them and they still keep going today :-)
