Artyom Yakovlev's rating of the film Araby

Only Brazilians would make so atmospheric, so moving a film, every frame of which pierces through you. You can physically feel what the characters are going through, how their culture and their environment are reflected in them, how they are struggling and searching for themselves, and how terrible the feeling of eternal loneliness is. The atmosphere of the film would have been incomplete without its wonderful music.
