Interesting Brazilian movie 1996
23 September 2010 | by (Dallas Tx United States75214) – See all my reviews

Mateus, his wife Antônia, their three kids and his brother Pedro open a grocery/bar in Goiânia, Brazil, in 1959, called "Armazém Brazil". But in the opening party, the Police, headed by a violent inspector nicknamed "Capitão", arrives to arrest, with extreme violence, an outlaw known as "Flexa". This violent scene scars the family permanently, and becomes the prelude to a tragedy Mateus (Leonardo Vieira), Antônia (Simone Spoladore) and their children are thrust headlong into the political turbulence of 1950s and '60s Brazil when police violently arrest an outlaw during the grand opening of the family's new grocery store. The brutal act is only the first of many wounds the family will sustain during the tumultuous era in this gripping drama, based on the novel by Miguel Jorge.

The story of a simple Brazilian family engaged in the political life of the 50s, from the suicide of President Getulio Vargas, the establishment of martial law in 1964, and the tumultuous two decades that followed, culminating in the death of President Tancredo Neves, responsible for the redemocratization of the country. Within their simple lives lay the dreams of Brazilian politics: the illusions, fears, terrors and disappointments as lived by ordinary citizens left with only their own hopes and tragedies.

A shocking new thriller from the acclaimed Brazilian filmmaker Joao Batista de Andrade based on the award winning novel Veias e Vinhos by Miguel Jorge on a horrifying true story buried for over 40 years.

Blood and Wine centers on Mateus, a modest business owner, his wife Antonia, their three children, and Mateus' brother Pedro. After Mateus launches a restaurant in Goias in central Brazil, he and his family find themselves persecuted by a wholly corrupt, graft-laden police force. The outcome is terrifying as almost all of Mateus family is brutally murdered. Will the sole survivor see the criminals brought to justice?

there are some review externals for this movie that I will soon try to post to this page.
