  • Nuno Pico

    Ferreira do Valadouro, 1995. 2nd Study in Audiovisual Communication at USC, and before that I did Philosophy. The first time I remember watching a movie, I was 4 years old and I was with my mother, my uncle and my grandmother, and when Groucho Marx appeared on the television screen, I was so scared to see that huge, dark black mustache that I started to cry  and I ran away to my bedroom. Then he wound up becoming one of the heroes of my childhood. For years, I spent afternoons watching the VHS collection of the Marx Brothers that RBA took out and that my uncle always bought, drinking Coca-Colas and eating Nocilla sandwiches. Then I would repeat the phrases and jokes that impressed me most to my friends at school to see if they liked them. Sometimes I got it right. Now I walk around trying to be Robert Mitchum.
