In the words of António Reis, Jaime "is not a story, but it is a film where everything matters". Perhaps that is the main reason for a camera so wandering that it looks for all the details that lurks in every hole in such a subjective way. Although it has rough appearance of 16mm film, Jaime can only be understood like an amateur film in the most etymological and poetic sense of the word (the one that loves), directed by a poet also expresses himself by images, and by his games of dramatic and poetic seduction with words and sounds, about the work of another poet, Jaime, an unknown self-taught institutionalized in a psychiatric hospital, to whom cinema seeks to restore his dignity.
