Next, Darlene meets Ciro, young and handsome, and invites him to dinner. Osias insists Ciro stay. When another son arrives, what will the proud Osias do? Written by
"Eu, Tu, Eles" is this kind of "freaky movie" which put on stage weird characters, with weird habits in a weird place. The story takes place in the Brazilian country side, in the middle of nowhere except plantations field. A beautiful girl raises her children in an mournful atmosphere. One day a young guy comes to work in the plantations and her little family is going to grow suddenly. Who is she with? The old one, the young one? The scenes are so absurd sometimes it makes you laugh, and it's deeply joyful to be confronted to absurdity sometimes. Anyway, it shows nice landscapes of Brazil with a lot of humor despite misery and difficult conditions. Besides the film didn't have a lot of money to be made. It worths its rate and its success in Brazil and elsewhere.
