In the intervening years, this silent black-and-white independent production disappeared from sight, and it became Peixoto's one and only workl. In 1992, Limite was rediscovered in the United Kingdom National Film Archive and was restored to be shown at the London Film Festival. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovimore

The remarkably luscious and mobile cinematography (for which cameraman Edgar Brazil had to build special equipment) alone makes it well worth seeing.

Limite is feverishly beautiful and desperately ambitious, even when it isn't clear.

Monótono? Muito. Auto-indulgente? Obviamente. Perfeito? De modo algum. Genial, ambicioso e inovador? Sim - e isto é só o começo. Inclua, também, adjetivos como 'poético', 'impactante' e 'mítico' e terá uma idéia melhor sobre este clássico.
