While the movie Poor Things showcases Lisbon where Emma Stone devours the delicious Portuguese pastries called “Pastéis de nata”, Carminho revealed that the Lisbon movie scenes were simulated in Budapest. Carminho stated to Expresso that “they made entire buildings out of Styrofoam, including the landmark site on the Lisbon waterfront, Cais das Colunas, that are two pillars located in the Tagus River and that are an impressive entrance to Lisbon’s waterfront. The movie set also simulated an incredible oyster restaurant, according to Carminho.  

 

During the filming of the movie Poor Things “there is a scene in which Emma Stone’s character devours pastéis de nata. She repeated it five or seven times. Poor thing, she just spat the pastries into the bucket, already sick of them!” commiserated Carminho.

 

The movie Poor Things with Emma Stone is scheduled to premiere in Portuguese cinemas on January 25th.
