A metaphor for freedom
10 August 2020 | by faer_krSee all my reviews

An African / Brazilian drama. It's about a boy who travels from Africa to Brazil in search of his older brother because they don't know anything about him, so that he returns home to be the leader of the family, but it turns out that nothing the brother said was entirely true . A film from the Berlin festival selection. Parsimonious. Quality. At times infuriating for not knowing where the brother is. An interesting metaphor about freedom. How much of what others tell us they are really true? This movie magnificently explores that. This movie is not for everyone, you have to like festival movies. It shows broad features of African culture and how it collides with a new continent.
