What are people saying?

  • Diego Carrera's rating of the film Angels of the Night

    A very poetic view over the craziness (and the loneliness) of the city of São Paulo and its inhabitants, some beautiful dialogues and interpretations (Marília Pêra, Chiquinho Brandão, Guilherme Leme, Zezé Motta), and a bruising melancholy all over the several stories make this gem one of the most complete filmic mosaics of Brazilian cinema. The scene in which Pêra and Leme dance "Dancing in the Dark" is pure poetry.
