1978. While the military coup that assaulted Brazil in 1964 starts to teeter, we follow a romance involving an 18 years old soldier and the cultural ringleader of an anarchist cabaret. Tattoo depicts the conflicts and reflections of a whole generation observed from a marginal perspective. Through the vantage point of the exception, the film elucidates the norm.Written by
The delicate romance between a military and a stage actor, and freedom versus censorship dominate the screen.
The Recife (Brazil) movies, once again presents me with a great movie (I hope for you too).
The delicate romance between a military (Jesuita Barbosa) and a stage actor (Irandhir Santos ) and freedom versus censorship dominate the screen. Everything happens in the 70's and the story unfolds in a very natural way.
All the characters are interesting , since a military who must deal with the first dance with another man, his girlfriend and the pressure inside the barrack to the son of stage actor who suffers bullying for being "single mother son and father queer".
The acting is great and the performance of Jesuita Barbosa is spectacular ! The film was written and directed by Hilton Lacerda (Amarelo Manga, Febre do Rato), which opens well in fiction direction.
