Set in the near future, the film follows Teresa (Bárbara Colen), who comes home to Bacurau, a fictional village in Brazil's semi-arid sertão, to attend her grandmother's funeral. Upon her arrival, Teresa immediately observes signs that Bacurau is in dire straits. Basic amenities are in short supply, mobile-phone coverage is fading, clean water supply is dammed and the truck that brings potable water arrives riddled with bullet holes. It soon becomes apparent that the corrupt government has forsaken the village completely: not only has Bacurau been literally erased from the map, but its citizens are under attack. As the responsible close in, the villagers must prepare an organized resistance to avoid greater damage.
Great horror movie, but is not only a horror movie
From all the genres that could be present in Bacurau, I think that I mostly like is the suspense. I was more afraid here than in most horror titles had released recently. I was petrified seeing that kids playing with that flashlight. Is it a fact that Kleber Mendonça Filho is definitely a great a director-cinephile, who kind have a lot of things to tell. In addition, I loved the little town, because reminded me the special place where I was born, in Apuiarés (Ceará, Brazil).
