Huis Clos Brazilian style.
27 August 2008 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

Cabra-Cega is an important Brazilian film.It is one of those unique films which allows viewers to form their own ideas about a film's progress.Its uniqueness can be attributed to the fact that nobody can predict how events would unfold.Brazilian director Toni Venturi takes us to 1971 which was a harrowing period of uncertainty for common people of Brazil.He shows us how ordinary Brazilians especially young university students used all their courage,determination and energy to fight military power.Closed spaces are of extreme importance to this film as much of the action takes place within the four walls of a single house.This is a good strategy to adopt as it enabled actors to express their emotions freely.It is due to this quality that Toni Venturi has been able to create a mature psychological portrait of his characters.A word about this film's actors Leonardo Medeiros and Debora Duboc.They have respectively given commendable performances as a soft yet focused revolutionary idealist and his lady love.I got a chance to meet Toni Venturi in 2006 when I saw this film at Cinéma L'Arlequin in Paris during 8th Festival of Brazilian Cinema organized by Franco Brazilian cultural center Jangada.
