The “quietly profound joys of bringing up baby” (The Guardian) are at the centre of this ‘fly-on-the-wall’ observational fiction, starring a real young family and their delightful new-born daughter. In an apartment in Lisbon, Marta takes care of her baby Clara while convalescing from childbirth. In these first days, family and friends come to visit, reminiscing about marriage and childbirth, their expectations and plans for the future. In Ordinary Time, life’s universal cycle unfolds through different voices, and the quiet in-between.

“… what is striking about the film, in these fast-paced times, is its contemplative tempo, the quietness of its minimalism and the near-total absence of conflict” Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
