Storyline

This is a comedy; a double satire of Brazilian soap operas and at the same time, about "savage capitalism" in 1990's Brazil where the Amazon jungle is exploited, while killing Indians and appropriating the land of its few surviving owners. The plot is headed mostly by Hugo Assis (Jose Mayer), apparently at first a major industrialist, and Elisa Medeiros (Fernanda Torres), a reporter investigating the suspect activities of Mr. Assis' company. Through Elisa, the powerful industrialist discovers his true origins. During a passionate love affair with her, Mr. Assis starts to become another person. As his company begins a massive gold extraction operation on indigenous lands, Elisa becomes engaged in an environmental struggle against this project and the exploitation of Indian homelands.

A Forbidden Love
23 September 2002 | by JGBrazilSee all my reviews

Brazil's outrageously dramatic tele-novellas inspire this tale of marital infidelity, national betrayal, public scandal, long lost orphans and of course, forbidden love. When a reporter uncovers the truth behind a company's plans to mine in the interior of Brazil it sets in motion a complex tale. Ecological ruin could result if the primal forces of this passionate land are ignored.

A very good film made before the new wave of brazilian movies. You have to see it!!!
