The cinematography is so good. Obviously, with a film like this one, the setting is vital, and the photography guarantees that. I felt the story was somewhat weak. The fact that the actresses played several roles was confusing for a bit. Overall it's a strong film. It's a good example of mood and setting.
A truly poetic brazilian avant-feminist movie, with two of the greatest brazilian actors of this era - Fernanda Torres and her mother Fernanda Montenegro - shooted at Lençóis Maranhenses, known as one of the most beautiful and enigmatic places around the globe. 5 shiny golden stars.
