Amasingly sincere and poetic portrait of remote Brazilian village and it's people...
This is another proof, that sometimes You just can't squeeze artwork into a certain genre: at least half of the footage of "Sonhos de Peixe" ("Dreaming of Fish") is pure documentary, filmed in most artistic and poetic way. There are NO professional actors (accept may be one), - all people in it are real fishermen with their families, living on the east shore of Brazil, struggling for their daily existence, fishing in the ocean, while their wives and children wait for them ashore for days, in constant fear, - because often they come back empty handed (due to massive industrial fishing) or don't come back at all These people know the very essence of living, it's true values, friendship, love, helping each other. They live very simple lives, with little luxury of small TV set in little living room, where whole village gets together every night for their ritual of watching melodrama series All that above described picture is a daily background for young Jusce and Ana, - the girl, for who's love and attention Jusce is prepared to go very far

I consider this as real phenomenon.
"Sonhos de Peixe" is a MUST see picture for those film lovers, who expect a little more from cinema, than just an entertainment in it's traditional sense
