Vicente (Lázaro Ramos) is a man that was raised by his stepfather and stepmother but he does not know anything about his origins. He creates pasts for troubled people as a means of living the same way he has invented different stories about how his foster parents have adopted him. When a mysterious woman (Alinne Moraes) arrives at his home office, she asks him to create the story of her life without giving any information about her. Vicente creates the character Clara Ortega and two months later, he gives her past and they have one night stand. Clara vanishes during the night and Vicente does not see her again. Months later, Vicente sees Clara interviewed on the TV News about the self-biographic book she will release with her story. Vicente goes to the bookstore to meet Clara and has a cold reception. Whar will happen next?
"O Vendedor de Passados" (meaning "The Seller of Pasts") is a Brazilian low-budget film with an original and witty tale about a man that creates pasts for clients and himself. The story and the screenplay are very well written and the viewer will never know what has really happen to Vicente and Clara. Lázaro Ramos and Alinne Moraes have great performances and the Brazilian DVD has English subtitles. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "O Vendedor de Passados" ("The Seller of Pasts")
