Many of his films are set in a district of Lisbonmarker inhabited by the socially disadvantaged and shot in a natural and low-key way that makes them resemble documentaries.

While studying history at University of Lisbonmarker, Costa switched to film courses at School of Theatre and Cinema (Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema). After working as an assistant director to several directors such as Jorge Silva Melo and João Botelho, he made a first feature film O Sangue (The Blood) in 1989.

He collected the France Culture Award (Foreign Cineaste of the Year) at 2002 Cannes Film Festival for directing the film No Quarto da Vanda (In Vanda's Room). Juventude em Marcha (Youth on the March, known as "Colossal Youth" in Anglophone countries, and "En avant, jeunesse" — "Onward, Youth" — in Francophone countries) was selected for the 2006 Cannes Film Festival and earned the Independent/Experimental prize (Los Angeles Film Critics Assossiation) in 2008.
