Reviews

Brazilliaanse speelfilm uit 2005 van Andrucha Waddington, met Fernanda Montenegro (Central do Brasil) en Fernanda Torres. Drie generaties Braziliaanse vrouwen proberen een leven op te bouwen in de woestijn. Het verhaal begint in 1910 met Aurea met haar echtgenoot Vasco en haar moeder. Na het overlijden van Vasco lukt het de zwangere Aurea niet de woestijn te ontvluchten en ze berust uiteindelijk in haar lot. Haar dochter verlangt er echter naar de wereld te verkennen. Robert Koehler (Variety,i) vindt de film 'powerful' en 'pic magnificently renders a fresh view of life on planet earth.' Winnaar Alfred P. Sloan Prize Sundance Film festival.
