The Brazilian filmmaker tells the love story of two youngsters who meet and have a love affair in an enchanted place. But everything will change when one of them commits a felony.
Bressane is constantly starting from scratch –or he does so as if he were– with a kind of impulse and poetic distinction that seem to be his exclusive property. A boy and a girl wander around a setting that may very well be the rather accurate representation of some sort of paradise: light and yet pedestrian, a disposition of the spirit rather than a sublime, heavenly scenario. In the end, it’s about a couple: rapture, mistrust, rupture, lost joy, loneliness, and perhaps a reunion. The director works with a dazzling grace and the serenity of a true master. Every shot reminds us of the essentially fragile nature that rules over the characters’ fate. DO
