What are people saying?

  • Leco's rating of the film Rio Sonata

    Assim como faz em "Música é Perfume" (sobre a cantora brasileira Maria Bethânia), porém de maneira mais suscinta, o olhar estrangeiro de Georges Gachot transcende a simples documentação da vida e da obra e investiga a relação entre a artista e sua música, suas influências e motivaçōes, parceiros, e ainda contextualiza o diálogo entre as cançōes de Nana e o povo brasileiro.
