Nothing changes on New Years Day
2 February 2000 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

This film takes place in Rio de Janeiro from December 30 1999 to January 1, 2000. It takes the stories of two people who's lives are about to totally change, and throws them into a universe which has no intention of changing despite the ostensible significance of the new calendar year.

The film is furiously shot and travels deep into the poverty stricken edges of Rio's mountainous terrain. It's a visceral visual experience (try to say that five times fast) and a must see for all cinema fans.
