An Ironic and Acid Exposition of a Social Problem
13 February 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In a poor community close to a slum in São Paulo, the hard worker Valter (Morat Descartes) raises his son Diogo (Lennon Campos) and his daughter Fernanda (Andressa Néri) with his wife Iara (Ana Carbatti) in the house built by his family. Valter informally works carrying frozen boxes without legal rights and studies at night aiming to be a nurse someday and have a better life. However, his life turns upside-down when Consuelo (Cláudia Mello), who is the ex-wife of his next-door neighbor Dimas (Umberto Magnani), rents her share of their house to a gang of smalltime criminals. Iara presses Valter to take an attitude against their new neighbors that bring women for parties and the loud music does not allow them to sleep. When Valter is near a breakdown, the gang is forced to leave the house. But Consuelo will rent the house to new tenants.

"Os Inquilinos" is an original movie that shows the life of poor honest people that has to live with criminals in their communities. Sergio Bianchi presents an ironic and acid exposition of this social problem that seems to be unresolved without an attitude of the governments. The poor Valter is near to a nervous breakdown with the problems created by his new neighbors while he is exploited by his boss and tries to improve his life through the studies. Further, he has bonds with his house, which was built with the work of his parents and therefore is of a great importance for him. The conclusion is cruel and it is impossible not feel sorry for the family. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Os Inquilinos" ("The Tenants")
