Marcelo, the film’s protagonist, invites us to visit his home and his memories as he discusses life with HIV, dating via gay apps, and memories of past lives. Composing a diptych with Vinagre's previous film, 'Rosa Azul de Novalis' goes a step further by not restricting itself to the spoken word: it materializes the previously imagined, reshaping traumas in the labyrinthine spaces of the house. The rarity of the title's blue rose signals to Marcelo’s singularity as a unique voice, away from the norm, and filled with intensities.
