Storyline

Living in a slum divided between two rival gangs of drug traffickers, Analídia is the daughter of one of the gangs' leaders and Jonatha is a childhood friend of the other gang leader. Both study in a dance group situated exactly in the middle of the two territories, looking for solace in art. A salute to the strong sense of Brazilian music, to the relevance of national contemporary dance, and to the strange mix found today in slums, where violence lives alongside the artistic paths enabled by social projects.

Brazilian director Lucia Murat presents an honest face of Favela experience.
9 July 2009 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

In Brazilian director Lucia Murat's film "Maré, Nossa História DE Amor",there is a very strong portrayal of strange but uplifting Favela atmosphere.It is true that she has made a film about dance and music which narrates the classical love story of Romeo and Juliet genre but she has not hesitated in showing that a strong gun culture dominates Favela way of life.So in this manner we get to see and hear music while being aware of the fact that senseless violence can erupt anytime.Lucia Murat succeeds as everything about Favela way of life is depicted in a frank,straightforward manner that viewers can feel that they have also become a part of a mysterious,surreal movement of society.This is the reason why some viewers might feel that there is too much of graphic violence in her film.The audience gets a chance of a lifetime to closely experience an immediate view of things both good and bad which happen on a daily basis in a Favela.The amazing thing is the grim portrayal of both communities without making caricatures out of them.Black community is seen as rebellious as it revolts against discrimination.The weakness of white community is exposed in scenes when threats are issued against some of its honorable members.The sad part of Lucia Murat's film concerns its revelation that honest ones also have to die as they have no chance of surviving in a violence filled atmosphere of Favelas.This is the precise motive why there is not much scope for love in a Favela as it is dominated by senseless violence.
