Storyline

In the Northeastern of Brazil, the wolf traveling salesman of fabric José Araújo arrives at Jardim dos Caiacós and succeeds in selling his merchandise to the Turkish Turco. He goes to a ball to celebrate the business and he meets Dualiba, the forty and something year-old virgin daughter of Turco. He shags Dualiba and she tells her father what happened, and José Araújo is forced to marry her. When the resigned Araújo discovers that he is the motive of joke in the town, he changes his name to Ojuara and becomes a fearless lonely rider though the countryside of Northeastern to the paradisiacal São Sarué. Along his journey, his name becomes a legend that has defeated the devil and many bullies. He meets the gorgeous Jacirene a.k.a. Genifer in a brothel; the circus acrobat in the trapeze Sue; the evil Mãe de Pantanha and her "vagina dentata" ("toothed vagina"); and the daughter of a powerful farmer Eleonora. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Interesting, beautiful and hilarious
10 October 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I liked a lot this movie, because it shows a face of Brazil that doesn't have to do with samba, carnival, or favelas. It's about the northeastern culture, music and myths, which have almost nothing to do with the rest of the country (except for the language, and even that changes a lot). This movie has great landscapes, the photography is gorgeous, and has that sort of "magical realism" that was very celebrated during the 60's, 70's in Latinamerican literature. Is a great way to remember that once in America (and until now in some parts), magic and reality are the main ingredients of life itself. Great movie, great trip, that leaves you with great feelings, and of course, the anxiety to see those lands by oneself.
