A Tale of the Loneliness in the Big City
12 August 2006 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Along the night of São Paulo, the lives of many characters interconnect through reality and fiction, in a search for love and sympathy.

"Anjos da Noite" is an experimental movie of the "Novo Cinema Paulista" ("New Paulista Cinema"), a movement in the 80's that took place in São Paulo and that was considered nostalgic and nihilistic in the vision of many critics. The metaphoric inconclusive essay about loneliness of the urban citizen in the big city focuses one night in the lives of common people without any judgment or conclusion: Ciça (Be Valerio), the student of sociology researching some tapes; Teddy (Guilheme Leme), a escort man that interacts with all the characters; Marta Brum (Marília Pera), a former successful actress forgotten by the audiences and limited to commercials on TV; Guto (Marcos Nanini), a successful gay that lives in New York and occasionally returns to Brazil for short periods; the director Jorge (Antônio Fagundes), who is interested in having sex with a young actress. The stunning performances of Marília Pera, Guilherme Leme and Marcos Nanini are remarkable. The optimistic end, showing the dawn with Ciça and Teddy together, in a wonderful photography, ends this different but attractive passionate movie. My vote is six.
