Movie Info

This Brazilian example of cinema novo chronicles the struggle of a man deeply entangled within unstable and crooked politics. The story is told in flashback by a writer who explains how he got into his present situation. He had been supporting a conservative party leader, but then decided to support the liberal candidate.

I have now seen enough of Rocha's work to know that I dislike it for its own sake, and not for the unfamiliarity of its locale and people or for the ritual obsessiveness of its themes.

One of the later entries (1966) in Brazil's short-lived Cinema Novo movement, applying New Wave pyrotechnics to popular and political mythology.

Rocha's frenzied mise-en-scene, which borrows from Fellini, Antonioni, and European avant-garde theater, is so stylized and self-referential that it probably appealed less to the masses than to the left-wing intelligentsia it scrutinizes.

Audience Reviews for Terra em Transe (Anguished Land)(Land Entranced)

A Brechtian allegory of cinematic and historical importance - and never obsolete, since everything remains nearly unchanged when it comes to politicians and their twisted ethics. A delirious and audacious work of spellbinding imagery and with no diverting subtlety.

Rocha the anarchist...well,partially.The Autran-Lewgoy-Filho trio of compulsive reactions is more than enough for the disbelievers to continue watching an operatic motion picture way ahead of its time.Sure,it's a flashback but what a flashback that was!!!
