Excellent
5 October 2006 | by rafaelsanziofSee all my reviews

The movie was shoot at the location of Lagoa Formosa (MG-Brazil). I happen to be born there, and so it was one of the highlights of my childhood seeing all that people engaged in that cinema thing. I also happened to become a cinema enthusiast from that time on.

So, this copy I've just got, on DVD but without any changes, nor repairs, shows this Brazilian classic from 1965, directed by the Santos Pereira brothers, based on the novel of Guimarães Rosa "Grande Sertão:Veredas".

A controverted history of love of Riobaldo (Maurício do Valle)and Diadorin (Sonia Clara).

Thanks for whoever had that great idea of having this movie digitalized.
