What was simply supposed to be just another tour for the release of a new record ended presenting Caetano Veloso with a tough series of challenges. "Errante Navegante" (Wandering Heart) intimately follows Caetano from São Paulo, New York to Japan, during the release of his first album recorded solely in English. It takes considerably more than a week-long series of shows at Carnegie Hall, accolades in the New York Times, or the admiration of friends like Pedro Almodóvar, David Byrne and Michelangelo Antonioni to make Caetano feel comfortable outside of Brazil. "Wandering Heart" is an enjoyable journey in search of answers to a series of questions that reveal Caetano in unprecedented intimacy... Written by
I'm not a big fan of Caetano Veloso, but I admire him in many ways. I like him because he usually says what he wants and he has a really nice voice. Moreover, he was one of the leading names of the Tropicalia movement, which changed the course of music in Brazil. There are many problems in this movie. For example, the director Fernando Grostein loses a lot of time showing Caetano hugging a three and petting a bird. I mean, what's the point? This documentary don't have a plot, it don't have a purpose. It's nice to see Antonioni and Almodovar here, but they seem displaced. Even with only 70 minutes it's a boring movie to watch. If you're not Caetano fan, stay away.
