A good movie

Honestly, I have never heard of this movie before but since it was directed by Walter Salles, I still wanted to check it out. Indeed, since his international breakthrough with 'Central do Brasil', I have tried to watch his other movies even though it has been many years since I have seen one of those.

The Brazilian badlands, April 1910. Tonho is ordered by his father to avenge the death of his older brother. The young man knows that if he commits this crime, his life will be divided in two: the 20 years he has already lived and the few days he has left to live, before the other family avenges their son's death. He is torn between fulfilling his ancestral duty and rebelling against it, urged by his younger brother Pacu. That's when a tiny traveling circus passes through the vast badlands where Tonho's family lives.

A good movie

“Honestly, I have never heard of this movie before but since it was directed by Walter Salles, I still wanted to check it out. Indeed, since his international breakthrough with 'Central do Brasil', I have tried to watch his other movies even though it has been many years since I have seen one of those. Anyway, I thought it was a pretty good drama but also a really weird flick. It is not really a mind-f*ck at all but the whole plot is based on some really bizarre family tradition which involves some endless revenge. I thought it was so weird that it was actually rather distracting. I mean, during the whole thing I couldn't help thinking 'Did something like this really happened in Brazil back in those days or was it pure fiction?'. It was kind of fascinating but also rather distracting at the” read more
