Pretty plausible storyline considering Brazil's northeast reality. It tackles the problems developed in a region where the lack of education for 500 years meets the men's brutality against women. It has a solid and compelling cinematography as well as the acting work.
Grim and hopeless story set in remote Brazil. Women are less than posessions to the animals there called men. A grandfather takes advantage of his granddaughters sexuality, the local boys beat the prostitutes and a young crush winds up in rape. Distasteful and depressing to say the least. A Tiger award winner at that year's Locarno..
