Ossos (English: "Bones") is a 1997 Portuguese film directed by Pedro Costa.
The story's focus is on a young girl and her lover who become parents of an unwanted baby. Their ambiguous tendencies keep this downbeat story moving around the shanty town. The director's ascetic style and this district's faded cityscape emphasize the depressing tone of the film.
He dealt with this shanty district (totally defunct nowaday) further after Ossos. The district's depression itself was mainly featured in his next film No Quarto da Vanda (In Vanda's Room).
