The Poetry of Life
27 November 2007 | by welingto-1See all my reviews

Transpose the universe of Guimarães Rosa, one of the most important Brazilian writers, rich in unusual of phrases and words, the use of neologisms, with the vocabulary close to the language of "sertanejos" of Minas Gerais and philosophical questions about life and death, is a difficult task. But it is a universe so rich and full of themes that a small cut it is material for a good film. Sandra Kogut, director of the documentary "Passaporte Húngaro", chose to adapt the story of Miguilim, considered one of the best of Portuguese language, for today, and gave the name of Mutum, small town in a rural area of Minas. She met the majority of its players among the residents of the region.

The story of Miguilim is about the loss of innocence and the lack of understanding by the child of the problems of the adulthood. "Miguilim had no desire to grow, to be great person. The conversation between adults was always the same things dry, with the need to be gross, scary things . ", Writes Guimarães Rosa in this short story. Those fears also: "Miguilim did not like to put eyes in the dark.".

The film has the simplicity of the characters, without music and fireworks, or formulaic script, like life itself has greatness in small things. The melancholic eyes of Miguilim are our eyes, in joy and in sorrow. Mutum is not a perfect film. Some key scenes pass quickly, without time to absorb some events. Perhaps is the desire to contemplate such beauty. Pure Poetry, the movie was shown in Cannes Film Festival and received praises worldwide.
