Deus e o Diabo na terra do sol, é um daqueles filmes sobre o nordeste relatando a miséria e pobreza da região, ressaltando aspectos negativos como o fanatismo religioso, o cangaço, a violência e desamparo por parte dos agentes do estado, algo óbvio mas que na época representou um importante papel na divulgação dos problemas econômicos e sociais, parece que estou recitando uma redação d... read more

Fictionalized account of the adventures of hired gunman Antonio das Mortes, set against the real life last days of rural banditism. The movie follows Antonio as he witnesses the descent of common rural worker Manuel into a life of crime, joining the gang of Antonio's sworn enemy, Corisco the Blond Devil (Othon Bastos), and the Pedra Bonita Massacre.

“Deus e o Diabo na terra do sol, é um daqueles filmes sobre o nordeste relatando a miséria e pobreza da região, ressaltando aspectos negativos como o fanatismo religioso, o cangaço, a violência e desamparo por parte dos agentes do estado, algo óbvio mas que na época representou um importante papel na divulgação dos problemas econômicos e sociais, parece que estou recitando uma redação do enem mas é isso ai, o filme gira em torno de Manoel e Rosa, dois caipiras muito pobres(e burros) que devido a miséria são forçados a fugir e se aliarem aos seguidores de Sebastião, um líder de seita que diz ser irmão de Cristo ou algo assim, as pessoas simplesmente acreditam e o veneram, Manoel representando o afegão médio acredita ferrenhamente que Sebastião é o irmão de Cristo, Seb” read more

"31.10. Brasiliassa on vissiinkin jotain poliittista ja uskonnollista. Suurin osa vertauskuvallisuudesta meni minulta varmasti ohi, koska en tunne 60-luvun Brasiliaa, mutta sokea usko mihin tahansa konventioon tulee hyvin selväksi. Kerrontatyyliltään elokuva muistuttaa hyvinkin paljon 60-luvun tsekkielokuvaa, mikä on vain iso plussa."
