High-power report of freedom and love on the fringes of tropical Recife. Anarchistic poet Zizo falls for the down-to-earth Eneida, while his friends succumb to sex, drugs and other hedonistic activities. In other words, a colourful black-and-white film.

Sweat, dirt, heat, touch, tongue, poetry: Assis is a son-of-a-bitch of a director to overwhelm the audience with such meat & spit. With a dazzling photography, this film is an ode to marginal cinema and sex as a weapon of freedom: here, the only thing dead is the city as a colective prison while the small comunities are the ones beating with desire. Anarchy and sex, says the poet: anarchy and sex.
Poético, bonito, mas exagerado. Fotografia de Walter Carvalho belíssima. Quase dei 4/5, apesar de ter gostado do roteiro com momentos não-linear, achei algumas cenas desnecessárias. Irandhir Santos tá grande no filme, sua atuação nesse filme rendeu prêmio de melhor Ator no festival de Paulínia em 2011.
