The best film made in Brazil this decade
26 March 1999 | by (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Baile Perfumado (Perfumed Ball) is a wonderful experimentation on cinema language, the way it works with the colors, the narrative and the mitology of one of the most interesting name in the brazilian history; it shows the creative that is miss in the arts of nowadays, and that was the essence of brazilian cinema. Baile Perfumado is the hope of a new stile of cinema in Brazil, of course there are order goods films made here in this decade, like Central do Brazil (Central Station), but nome of them shows the creation power of Baile Perfumado, the innovation that resembles us to the films of Glauber, Nelson Perreira, and other names of Cinema Novo.
