Daniel de Oliveira,
The life and times of Cazuza, Brazilian singer/poet/enfant terrible, from his start with rock group "Barão Vermelho", to his death from Aids, in 1990, showing his career, love affairs, and involvement with drugs.
Daniel de Oliveira,
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.
