A Fable
10 May 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The title of this film in Portuguese was Fábula (A Fable). I saw it a long time ago. I wasn't prepared for what was in store for me - I hadn't read any comments about the film.... I was walking down the street and happened to pass in front of a movie theater, the title on the marquee struck my curiosity - it was FÁBULA. I went inside. When I left the theater I was deeply touched.

"Fábula" ("Mitt hem är Copacabana" in Swedish) is about the homeless children forced to live on the streets in Rio de Janeiro. I don't remember much about the film. I remember that it was not a political film (in the strict sense of the word), nor a documentary film.

It shows the miserable and hopeless life of these children, but even so it's not a desperate film - after all they are children, play games and live their lives day to day. There is even a touch of poetry and fantasy in "Fábula" (the film honors its Portuguese title). I remember in particular one scene near the end of the film where a poor balloon seller, taken by his balloons, floats in the sky (?!!!). Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me, but still the image remains whenever I remember the film.

I would like to see the film again to reappraise it. Anyway it left a lasting impression on me. This film should be released on DVD.
