Vidas Secas

Andrei Herea's rating of the film Barren Lives

Vidas Secas captures a deeply memorable account of the underdevelopment and vast socio-economic disparity that plagues the Northeast. It impresses with a relentless depiction of its memorable characters and symbiosis between nature and human existence. In center, a family that thinks but rarely speaks,they accept and face the reality of their everyday lives heroically and with impressive stoicism. One to remember.
