Storyline

The film tells the story of an intuitive, adventurous man who loved his country and being Brazilian. This man fought to be loyal to himself. His music is a transparent portrait of his genius, intuition, freedom, adventure and passion for Brazil. The story shows aging Villa-Lobos going to a gala concert in the Theatre of Rio de Janeiro for a tribute in his honor. This is the last time he is coming out of his house alive. His looks are feverish and attentive. Different scenes of the concert will bring back memories of his life. Villa-Lobos suffers a great many ordeals: the violence of his father, his mother's sadness, the disaffection of Lucilia, his first wife, the inability to have children, the unacceptance of his art, the possible loss of Mindinha, his great love, the abyss between genius and madness. The pieces of this game recreated chronologically conform the personality of Villa: energetic and fragile, humble and megalomaniac, amorous and egocentric, brilliant and naive, ...
