Synopsis

Áurea, a solitary teacher, starts a singular relationship with a young man with whom she has a chance encounter. A sensitive soul, she finds herself attracted to his moving beauty which compels her to lose herself… She will slowly reveal her feelings in classes full of literature and mythology.

Our take

A key figure in Brazil’s Marginal Cinema movement, Júlio Bressane here reimagines the Greek myth of Endymion as a sexy, mysterious, and exploratory encounter between an older woman and a young man. A playful monologue on love, sex and the spiritual that isn’t afraid to have fun with hefty themes.
