Gripping film about racism mixed up with anti-semitism in Brazil
30 May 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

THE AVOCADO SEED (Um Sonho no Caroco do Abacate) is a Brazilian film with appearances by, not starring, Elliott Gould and Talia Shire, as some sources state. It stars Thais Araujo (recently named Best Actress at the 1999 Brazilian Film Festival, competing with Marilia Pera and Ferananda Montenegro, among others) as the female lead. Thais' character, a young black girl, and a Jewish boy eventually fall in love. Thais' brother and the Jewish boy are the only two minority students at a good Brazilian school. The young characters are all young Brazilians themselves, the Jewish Brazilian (born of Eastern European immigrants: enter Gould and Shire) technically less so, but nevertheless comparatively superior as "white." The relationship between this bi-racial trio of clashing religions to boot, and the consequences at school and in Brazilian society form the plot for this interesting drama.
