Storyline

The Caravana Rolidei rolls into town with the Gypsy Lord at the mike: he does magic tricks, the erotic Salomé dances, and the mute Swallow performs feats of strength. A young accordion player is completely enamored of Salomé, and he begs to come along. The Gypsy Lord shrugs, and the accordionist and his pregnant wife, Dasdô, join the troupe. Television is their enemy as they go from the coast deep into the Amazon. Salomé lets the accordion player sleep with her once, with Dasdô's knowledge. He's moon-struck. Then, after Dasdô's baby is born and financial disaster hits the troupe, and the accordionist must choose between seeing his wife a prostitute and leaving the caravan.

BRAZIL OF THE INTERIOR BEAUTIFUL AND SIMPLE
17 June 2018 | by maralvimmmSee all my reviews

It shows a Brazil from the inside, a very touching film that we see the life choices of small mambembes style artists that circulate in their own network and alternative of presentations. A movie with our way and our little tricks, wonderful!

The filmmaker is the brilliant maceioense Cacá Diegues, made, among others, Xica da Silva in 1976, on slavery in Brazil. The protagonists are the experienced Jose Wilker (The Black Cover Man of 1980) and Beth Faria (For All: The Trampoline of Victory of 1997). There is also the young actor and cantr Fabio Junior.
