Storyline

In the countryside of Pernambuco, in a small village nearby a sugarcane plantation and an alcohol plant, the despicable and cheap Heitor abuses of his sixteen year-old granddaughter Auxiliadora, submitting her to slavery and humiliations during the days, and every now and then exposing her naked body to truck drivers in a gas station in the night to raise additional money. The group of potheads leaded by Everardo spends their time in violent orgies with prostitutes, drinking booze and smoking marijuana, and the mean and sadistic Cícero desires the virgin Auxiliadora.

Heavy, raw and REAL!
30 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I'm Brazilian and I have to say that lately I've been really impressed by our local production... And "Baixio das Bestas" is one of those films that stuck in my mind for a while and I decided to write this review... Before watching it, i was already preparing myself for some kind of a shocking film, since its director is the excellent Cláudio Assis, a very raw person who speaks (and shoots) what he really feels is the true reality of our country. The cast of "Baixio das Bestas" hands out incredible performances, the characters are deep and violent. And before anyone says they're too brutal or something like, it must be considered that they are depicting the reality of Brazilian countryside, based on conservative and traditional rules. The film is great, superb cinematography and directing.

Baixio das Bestas, 8/10
