Nélson Rodrigues deserves more...
20 December 2002 | by (Brasília, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Nélson Rodrigues, one of the best Brazilian cronists, sometimes was adapted for cinema but it's very hard enjoy it on the big screen and I prefer his books. This is a good example of a bad movie. Dina Sfat, Lucélia Santos, Rubens Correa, Carlos Gregorio and others look like crazy people in this story which really talks about the most intense and secret feelings of the human being. I recomend to see Vanda Lacerda and Rubens Correa, respectable actors and giants of Brazilian stage.
