This film is really wonderful. Is a visual poetic. The atmosphere come to we in cold and beautiful way. All your approach and your visual look, your analog style, show very good few eyes with good concept of visual beauty. The vision by this auteur, of the world, of the life, of the dead, is feeling much here.
I saw this film 3 days ago, in the Cartagena Film Festival (FICCI), but I want see it again.
Dreamy poetry and loneliness trapped in a place where an escape seems to be the only option... It's slow paced, heavy, but this is a fine piece of film-making. It's an uneasy drift with great music that will most likely leave you thinking for a moment about what really happened there. The visual style gives it an ethereal feeling, the performances are solid. An unexpected gem, excellent cinema!
Good movie with a thin plot but gorgeous photography. It speaks not so much (or not only) of depression or of the difficulty of being teen, but above all of the constraint of living in a place where one does not feel at ease. So escape, in various forms, is the only option.
In the desolate brazilian countryside, a boy, codename "Mr. Tambourine man" spends time in internet, smoking pot and arguing with his dysfuncional mother. A non-narrative structure, it talks about depression, lonliness and how society repress the youngsters: suicide is the only way to be free. Smart (allegories) and dark, but no explanation about the incident, and I don't know if I'll wach it again, in future.
Nice surprise. Emotional but never sappy. Beautifully shot. Evocative mood, right pacing, strong sense of time and place. Great use of nonactors: the old couple is lovely. Interesting soundtrack (and good sound, which is always nice to hear in Brazilian movies). The "lyrical" blog post voiceovers are cringeworthy, though — but this is usually true of teenage writing, so in the end they also did a good job on this.
