Os Famosos e os Duendes da Morte

Esmir Filho Brazil, 2009

Ausencia's rating of the film The Famous and the Dead

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.
