Storyline

Iremar works at the "Vaquejadas", a rodeo in the North East of Brazil where two men on horseback try bring down a bull by grabbing its tail. It's dusty and back-breaking work, but Iremar is a natural vaqueiro feeding, prepping and taking care of the bulls. Home is the truck used to transport the animals from show to show which he shares with his coworkers; Galega, an exotic dancer, truck driver and mother to her spirited and cheeky daughter Cacá, and Zé, his rotund compadre in the bull pen. Together they form a makeshift but close-knit family. But Brazil and the Northeast are changing and the region's booming clothing industry has stirred new ambitions in Iremar. Swinging in his hammock in the back of the truck, his head is filled with dreams of pattern cutting, sequins and exquisite fabrics as he mentally assembles his latest sexy fashion designs.

Bad animal cruelty but great film
7 June 2020 | by mlerthfSee all my reviews

Beautiful film, thoughtful, intriguing with wonderful cinematography and performances and some great, inventive well-written scenes, definitely worth watching. But: Do not watch if you cannot see animal cruelty depicted. No idea what obscenely cruel humans invented and still perpetuate this absolutely horrible bull sport depicted in the film, some have tried to ban it but been overruled by 'cultural' exceptions' -culture should not excuse it- it is horrifying.
