On his deathbed, his royal highness Alfredo, king without a crown, is taken back to distant youth memories and the time he dreamt of becoming a fireman. The encounter with instructor Afonso from the fire brigade opens a new chapter in the life of the two young men immersed in love and desire, and the will to change the status quo. From the director of 2016's delightfully surreal THE ORNITHOLOGIST.

In Portuguese with English subtitles.

“Rampantly horny and unapologetically silly… Will-o’-the-Wisp lives up to the flighty, elusive promise of its title, teasing its viewers in more ways than one…” Guy Lodge, Variety

“…a work that feels light, quick and quite dirty in every sense.” Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

“A racially risky, raunchy Portuguese musical about class and pyromania that will light you on fire. Facials! Fake dicks! A real arty head-scratcher of a film that makes Titane seem tame.” John Waters
