Os Famosos e os Duendes da Morte

Esmir Filho Brazil, 2009

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

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!
