Coming Soon



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.

“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


“Will light a lot of fires.”
–Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

“A man on his deathbed recounts his youth as a firefighter in João Pedro Rodrigues’ queer feature.”
–Charles Bramesco, Little White Lies

“Portuguese director João Pedro Rodrigues goes for it in the low-budget “Fogo-Fátuo,” the most audacious, funniest, and unpredictable work seen at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.”
–Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
