In Santo Cristo, João (Fabrício Boliveira) is arrested and imprisoned after killing the man that murdered his father. Years later, in the 80's, he is discharged and moves to Brasília to seek out his cousin Pablo (César Troncoso) to find a job. João works as a carpenter, but Pablo that is a drug dealer, offers him some money to deliver marijuana in the upper-class neighborhood. João is surprised by police raid and he flees. When he sees the architecture student Maria Lúcia (Isis Valverde) on her apartment, João climbs the building and she protects him. Soon they fall in love with each other and João decides to leave the crime to live a honest life. But the drug dealer Jeremias (Felipe Abib) that has a crush on Maria Lúcia, and his partner, the corrupt detective Marco Aurélio (Antonio Calloni), begin a war against João and Pablo with tragic consequences.

"Faroeste Caboclo" is one of the best (if not the best) Brazilian movies of 2013, with a story that is an adaptation of the lyrics of a song by the Brazilian composer and singer Renato Russo, who died in 1996 at the age of 36. The plot entwines romance, drama and action and is developed in adequate pace. The conclusion recalls the spaghetti western, where everybody dies. Great direction, performances, camera work, lighting, edition and music score make "Faroeste Caboclo" an unforgettable movie. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Faroeste Caboclo" ("Caboclo Western") Note: "Caboclo" is a mixed race of Indian and Caucasian from the countryside of Brazil.
