Very Amazing
19 December 2013 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I would really love to see again this film, which I've seen in São Paulo in 1961. Besides the positive aspects mentioned by the reviews already posted, I would emphasize another quality: some events are presented two or three times from the point of view of the different characters. As the events are not organized in chronological order, and the situations, faces and happenings are similar, the film seems absolutely confusing, till you realize what is intended to be shown: the reality is repetitive, but unique for each person, and each event must be understood from different angles. It's a pity that this film is not available on DVD.
