Melodramatic Story of Redemption and Revenge
24 October 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Rincão da Serra, in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul, the outlaw Jaime steals the money of two men that have just negotiated a farm and escapes riding his horse. However, he is hunted down by three men and one bullet hits his shoulder and he falls unconscious on the bench of a river. The friends Dorinha and Rosália are bathing in the river and help Jaime, bringing him to the farm that belongs to Dorinha's parents, Mr. Lourenço and Isaura. While Jaime heals his arm, he falls in love with Dorinha that convinces him to turn himself in to Lieutenant Osvaldo.

Jaime is sentenced to many years in prison and Dorinha waits for him while Osvaldo and Rosália get married. When Jaime is released from prison, he meets Dorinha and they schedule for the wedding. But the cruel criminal Xavier plots with his friend and the gunmen Guilherme, Alfredo, Gregório to steal the money of a herd of cattle that Mr. Lourenço has just sold and rape Dorinha to avenge her father. But Mr. Lourenço reacts and the criminals kill the family. When Jaime returns to the farmhouse and sees the slaughtered family, he decides to hunt down Xavier and his gang to revenge Dorinha and her family. Meanwhile Osvaldo, that was promoted to Captain, foresees Jaime's intention and tries to stop him from bringing justice with his own hands.

"A Sina do Aventureiro" (meaning "The Adventurer's Fate"), is the first feature of the Brazilian filmmaker José Mojica Marins, o Zé do Caixão (Joe Coffin). The melodramatic story of redemption and revenge follows the style of the Mexican melodramas of the 50's or Brazilian soap opera, but with a good screenplay and narrative. Unfortunately Brazil does not preserve the culture and the movie is completely damaged, inclusive it is hard to follow in some parts. This movie deserved to be restored to keep our history. The art of the DVD is fantastic. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Sina do Aventureiro" ("The Adventurer's Fate")
