Strong Portrait of Old Brazil
23 November 2002 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film portrays the suffering and humiliation of an ex-convent bound orphan given no choice but to get married to a colonial strongman.

Its spoken in archaic portuguese which seems like a big mix of formal portuguese and spanish. This makes it especially interesting to portuguese and spanish speakers. Of course subtitles are included to help out.

The actors did a great job, especially the female lead. Simone Spoladore is fast making a name for herself as one of the best females actresses of Brazil. Needless to say she is very beautiful as well. The male cast does just as well.

I recommend this film strongly. The archaic portugues and the haunting visual portrayal of Brazil in 1570's draw you into the period and the story of a desperate woman.
