Storyline

A miracle happened in Brazil on the 1950's. Renowned modern art museums opened their doors to artists nobody ever heard of. Many critics pointed out that theses exhibitions revealed painters that should be ranked amongst the best brazillian artists of the century. It was written that this explosion of art and beauty was a sign that something comparable to the renaissance was happening in Riio de Janeiro. Behind this miracle there was no art academy, patron or dealer, only a psychiatrist, ridiculed by her colleagues, and a painting studio at a mental hospital, in the outskirts of town. The artists were schizophrenic, poor, hospitalized for several decades, abandoned by their families and hopeless according to their doctors. This film tells the story of this "Miracle" and the life of this rebellious, frail and engaging psychiatrist: Dra. Nise da Silveira. Written by TvZero

In an age of blockbusters and remakes, this is an original movie that demands your attention
27 October 2016 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry that I don't have more time to do a full review, but I watched this film in the Brazilian Embassy in London last night (26th October) and I was blown away. It was incredibly inspirational and emotional, and all the actors do an amazing job, so does the director, who was in attendance at the screening. I can't recommend this film highly enough, and the fact that it is based on a true story is even more amazing. While it doesn't go into great depths about the patients and their symptoms, it shows enough to draw you in and gain an understanding about their struggles.

At the end of the day this is a feel good movie about hope, overcoming adversity and the hidden talents we all possess, even those of us, who society has given up on. I really hope it reaches a wider audience as the director seemed like a really humble guy, and he deserves all the praise her gets.
