An unpredictable, poetic Latin American tale
30 May 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I want to comment on THE CALL OF OBOE ("O Toque do Oboe") not only because it's an excellent film, but because I wouldn't want others, as a couple of friends of mine did, and as I did on the first showing, to miss it due to lack of information, or in my case, one sole very negative review (but the only single one; not related to IMDb by the way) from a clueless critic who should not have critiqued a film he did not understand at all. The plot deals with the developments in an old decadent village after a stranger arrives at the old train station, an event in itself. This stranger is a Brazilian musician who carries and plays his "oboe". The music from the oboe, the musician's instrument, will change the lives of everyone involved, and that small village itself will forever be changed by the sound of the oboe. With characters well-developed, expertly acted and directed, this film has been popular with the public and critics alike, having just won both the Audience Award and the Jury Award as Best Picture at the recent 1999 Brazilian Film Festival.
