"Simultaneously strange and familiar, distant and near, disquieting and seductive, outsider and cosmopolitan, Gypsies are shrouded in an aura of ambiguity. They cannot be said to be invisible, as they hardly go unnoticed."
(Daniel Seabra Lopes)
Like the Gypsies, the frogs, made of china, don't go unnoticed to a careful observer. "Batrachian's Ballad" comes about in a context of ambiguity. A film that immerses itself in the reality of Portuguese everyday life, as a form of fabling about a xenophobic behaviour.
