A good movie

Since this movie seemed to have a solid reputation (it is included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list among other things), I thought I might as well check it out. Well, Mario Peixoto definitely delivered a strange movie here, that’s for sure, and I have to admit that I had pretty much no clue what the damned thing was actually about.

(MU) Early precocious avant garde in Brasil, very demanding to public, long, more contemplation than action, non too sensual but estetically rich...

In a drifting small boat, two women and a man recalls their recent past. One of the women escaped from the prison; the other one was desperate; and the man had lost his lover. They have no further strength or desire to live and have reached the limit of their existences.

Apparently, one woman had escaped from prison, another woman had left a bad marriage and there was a man in love with someone else's wife but, to be honest, it didn’t get all that at all. It’s also interesting that this movie would be Peixoto only directing effort but, even if the guy was only around 21 years old at the time, his movie would still manage to become one of the best Brazilian movies ever made, no less than that.

"27.10. Brasilialaisessa kokeellisessa mykkäelokuvassa on todella kevyt juonentynkä vankilapaosta, mutta sillä ei ole elokuvan kannalta muuta merkitystä kuin hahmojen elämän ja liikkumisen rajoittaminen, jota myös elokuvassa nähtävät meri, kalliot ja metsät tukevat. Suurimmaksi osaksi Limitessä vain kuljetaan allapäin poispäin kamerasta. Se on kuitenkin erittäin hypnoottista, koska kuvasto on kekseliäiden kuvakulmien ja synkän alavireensä vuoksi todella upeaa seurattavaa. Parit"
