Three upper-middle class teenagers start a night of partying, including wild sex, rape, drugs, and accidental murder. Fun merges with violence with absurd, tragicomic results. The more they try to cover up their goof ups, the more complicated their lives become. Written by Gonz30

Trivia

This is the first film from the Trauma manifesto, the good-humored Brazilian answer to the Dogma 95 movement - a variant in that it highlights the terrible obstacles to young film makers in the third world; thus its Portuguese acronym T.R.A.U.M.A. Other TRAUMA rules include the participation of one previous TRAUMA cast member in each film, and revealing the director's name somewhere in the feature. This, the movement's first release, became an instant hit in Brazil, winning the Audience Award at the São Paulo Film Festival only ten days after its first public showing. See more »

Simply the best
27 February 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Cama De Gato (Cat's Cradle) is the best Brazilian film I've seen in the last 10 years. It's very deep and still very funny, like the Brazilian society is, with all it's problems but still a great country with great people, but probably the worst politicians on earth. Cama De Gato does not try to show the things differently as they are in reality, it makes philosophy with the ordinary life of three young upper middle class teenagers that get into big troubles just because they were looking for a "bit of fun"... Very impressive and important film to understand a little more about this very complex society. Simply the best. I'm very interested in Alexandre Stockler's next project.
