Trivia

The scene of the prison escape is shown in parallel with an insert from The Adventurer (1917), with the title "Carlitos encrencou a zona", meaning: Charlie messed up his way out - where his head with the convict cap emerges just by the side of the prison guard. The sequence is shown as a film-in-the film, during a projection in a theatre with a piano player providing the accompaniment to Charles Chaplin's silent film. See more »

Great classic, and visually very impressive.
16 November 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is an absolute brazilian classic, and I wouldn´t be too patriot to call it as an international classic as well, altough it must be very hard for foreigners to be able to see this one. There isn´t much of a story, but Mário Peixoto (who never directed any other film in his life) give us a very stylistic film, in which, as in all silent films, what matters is what is shown, and not what is told. In fact, there are only two "dialogs" in the whole movie.

Limite is almost a filmed poetry, and we´re carried away by its smooth rhythym and great visual power. A must-see picture.
