Wonderful literary thriller
20 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Superb acting, incredible screenplay, wonderful movie journey. This films deserves more visibility. It shows Brazil as it really is. I saw it at a film festival in Nashville where it won a couple of awards. I learned after that it won more awards. Well deserved. Although it should, it will probably never be released on the commercial circuit. What a shame. It is based on a short story by Austrian Jewish writer Stephan Zweig, who emigrated go Brazil in the 1930ies and committed suicide. The film is both a quite liberal adaptation of the story and a very faithful one in the sense that it captures the essence of it, without being caught in its details. The main character, Beto, is played by Vladimir Brichta with nuance and intelligence. The way he handles the changes in the character is very subtle. The old collector, played by Walmor Chagas, shows charisma, humor and emotion. In fact, all the actors are amazing. The cinematography is beautiful and the soundtrack impeccable, always organic.
