Cinema Of Brazil: Music And Rhythm; Sound In Cinema – Music In Film: UK Portuguese Film Festival, London

One of the themes of this year's City Of London festival is the music of the Portuguese-speaking world, which is good news for cinemagoers, as these parallel festivals deliver more genres than you can shake a hip at. On the Brazilian side, there's the birth of bossa nova in the 1960s-set Os Desafinados, Crouching Tiger-style capoeira action in Besouro, or streetwise girl groups in São Paolo drama Antônia, plus documentaries on Tropicalia figureheads Arnaldo Baptista (of Os Mutantes) and Caetano Veloso, Wilson Simonal and Vinícius de Moraes. Representing Portugal, there's fado legend Amália Rodrigues in 1943's Fado, Story Of A Singer and Manuel de Oliveira's Buñuelesque Os Canibais.
