The most legendary and unseen silent film in Brazilian history evokes the theme of three shipwrecked people, two women and a man adrift in a small boat on the open sea. Peixoto’s technique was influenced by the legacy of French avant-garde films.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
You're right, it's almost 2 hours.
An evidence of its poor reputation is that in 1960 G. Sadoul reached Rio, in his Brazilian trip, only to see this film. But he couldn't see it because it was undergoing restoration, that lasted two decades
Considerado o melhor filme brasileiro de todos os tempos, é um mergulho profundo nos questionamentos e angústias dos homens. Mostra a história de 3 pessoas q estão à deriva num barco, e fazendo um retrospectiva de suas vidas. O filme é cheio de metáforas e simbolismos q mexem muito c a gente. MUITO BOM!!!
