Screaming for Silence
15 January 2010 | by (Russian Federation, Ivanovo) – See all my reviews

I've just read that Mutum means mute and it's also the name of the region in Brazil where the family of this film does live on their fazenda. We see a tyrant father, children's life, everyday exhausting toil and family relationships through the eyes of Thiago, a ten-year-old boy who is dissimilar to the rest of the family. While watching this film I was remembering the summer visits in my childhood to my aunt's farmer house in the south of Ukraine – six brothers and two sisters, hardships and the endless drudge, even the landscape seemed similarly barren – in spite of the great difference in time and culture and the huge distance between two places the atmosphere looked very alike.
