Fortune takes four human beings to the last frontier of passion. There, where love becomes almost inhuman and divine. As if he was a comet, Rafael, the traveler, appears at the party for the cities patron saint, in a small town in the interior of Minas Gerais. He is the one who brings passion and crime, vanishing afterwards, leaving a poetic feeling in the air, which is always deadly to the ones who stay. Mrs. Ana de Lara, the proud rich widow, and Missy, still a child, whose beauty and innocence are like the Tiê-Sangue, a red bird, are the travelers victims. There is also Master Juca do Vale, a criminal, whose passion turns him incredibly human, in this story of love, death, forgiveness and resurrection. Written by luiza do brasil

A Masterpiece from several Brazilian living legends
25 May 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

O VIAJANTE (The Traveler) is a gem from one of Brazil's "Cinema Novo" founders, Paulo Cesar Saraceni, who adapted, scripted, and directed it and premiered it here last night at the Brazilian Film Festival. It's a total cinematic feast with visual, story-telling, and dramatic effects enhancing the power of the original novel. O VIAJANTE stars the superb MARILIA PERA (the first South American ever honored in North America with a Best Actress Prize, for PIXOTE (1981) by the National Society of Film Critics). Ms. Pera's character is the main villager transformed by the "Viajante"'s arrival. Set in the 50's, in a very picturesque village in the mountains of Minas Gerais, the non-linear, philosophic, and Greek tragedy-like plot primarily involves four villagers whose lives are dragged beyond the limits of passion after a handsome traveling salesman arrives in town. His legacy is a mixed bag of blessings, love, death, damnation, pardon and resurrection. Not light entertainment, but powerful messages and riveting drama for those who follow as this masterpiece unfolds on the screen. I give it a 10!
