magnificent photography and music
9 August 2004 | by (Kuurne, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I keep a very impressing souvenir of this picture I saw (6 times) in the fifties and would extremely appreciate if anyone could help me in finding a video copy. I much appreciated the crude and natural poetry of the film and,of course, the wonderful music. The photography also impressed me quite a lot and in my opinion Lima Barreto could have been influenced by Carol Reed. By all means, this film can certainly compete with the best "westerns" and should be given a chance to touch the actual generation by means of video, DVD etc. Although, since then, we have larger screens and color, this kind of picture in black and white proves, if necessary, that masterpieces exists without that.
