Storyline

In the beginning of the Twentieth Century, Coronel Ponciano de Azeredo Furtado inherits the farm Sobradinho in the country, many possessions and the title of "colonel" of his grandfather. His close friend Pernambuco Nogueira, son of one of the employees of the farm and with whom Ponciano was raised together since they were born, gets nothing in the will. Ponciano has a crush on his cuisine Esmeraldina, but he never declares his love to her. When he loses the mortgage of his farm to Nogueira, who got married to Esmeraldina, Ponciano goes to the court trying to prove that Nogueira is a werewolf. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

For those who expect to see a superb film, I must tell "O Coronel e o Lobisomem" (The Colonel and the Wereworlf) might not be the right choice. It's far from being some which can attract millions of people to the movie theatres, since it does not have the fun of "O Auto da Compadecida" (A Dog's Will) and "Caramuru - A Invenção do Brasil". The film is not as beautiful as "Lisbela e o Prisioneiro" either, but has some sweetness which many ordinary films (which is NOT the case of the movies cited above) have left out. Adapted from a novel, the film keeps the flavour of the book and uses the magic of cinema. The mix results in a good product which shows how strong Brazilian cinema is at the moment. Although it's another countryside film, filmmakers from Brazil show that they can also work on big cities comedies, actions films, dramas e adaptation of novels. Come to Brazil and check it out.
