Gullane Brothers Ride Brazil’s Support to Commercial, Arthouse Success

30 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brazil’s entertainment industry is the envy of Latin America: It boasts eight years of box office growth, local movies that grabbed an 18.6% market share last year and strong government financial support. So it makes sense that Sao Paulo-based brothers Fabiano and Caio Gullane, who have built one of the best reputations in the Brazilian film industry, are poised to take their

production house, Gullane Filmes, to greater heights.

The brothers started their business out of a van, nearly 20 years ago. Now, they frequently produce local pics with Hollywood studios, and in turn, U.S. majors often pick up their movies for distribution. The Gullanes also have increased their output of projects for TV, and they’ve launched a distribution arm.

Gullane Filmes is moving forward with a 14-title movie-development/production slate, unthinkable in Brazil just a few years back. But thanks to a R$1.2 billion ($480 million) package of public-sector »

Rome Film Review: ‘The Maias: Scenes from Romantic Life’

25 October 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It wouldn’t be strictly accurate to say that “The Maias: Scenes from Romantic Life” requires viewers to watch paint dry, but there’s certainly a lot of it at rest in Joao Botelho’s boldly stylized Portuguese costumer. Favoring undisguised matte backdrops and an arch performance style to counter the florid melodrama of Eca de Queiroz’s 19th-century source novel, this highbrow soap opera of star-crossed passion, economic downfall and other aristocratic mysteries of Lisbon has visual intrigue to spare, but a distinct case of emotional torpor limits it to festival-curiosity status. To be filed — if not necessarily ranked — between comparable works by Raul Ruiz and Eric Rohmer, Botelho’s film opened on Sept. 11 in its home country and has since played the Rio and Rome fests.

“It seems that this embroidery will never end,” observes one character to another midway through Botelho’s lengthy film. He may be »

Review: Viggo Mortensen is lost in the wilderness of the impenetrable 'Jauja'

21 May 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes - "Did you see the Lisandro Alonso?!" came the eager text from a friend not in Cannes, mere minutes after I had, indeed, seen Alonso's "Jauja" -- an Argentine western turned existential comedy turned, well, any number of alternate-dimension subgenres. I  envied him his excitement. Alonso has built up a fiercely devoted band of admirers with his opaque brand of slow-cinema puzzle picture, as demonstrated in the likes of "Liverpool" and "Los Muertos"; for those of us who have never gained access to that club, "Jauja" is unlikely to bring us much closer. Intermittently playful, consistently confounding, finally petrified, it's a film of fussy, cultivated austerity; Alonsolytes will debate what it's hiding, while others will suggest "an actual movie" as the answer. Initially, improbably, it seems that we're in for more hand-holding than usual from Alonso, as proceedings open with a lengthy block of text that helpfully gives context »
