Dive beneath the surface
27 October 2011 | by (São Paulo - Brazil) – See all my reviews

How strong can a film be? Its images can be powerful enough to give us emotions. This is what happens in this Portuguese gem. A film that deals both with surf and a religious personal quest. Surf, of course, can be a metaphor for life. For our age, when 140 characters can be a text, a film as 'This side of resurrection' can be a daring experience that forces its audience to seat, take a deep breath and dive with its protagonists siblings into the ocean of life.

Mr Sapinho and his cast have produce a beautiful mediation about life and faith - not only in God or Jesus, but in ourselves.

It was a pleasure to have it in the selection of São Paulo Film Festival/2011.
