One of the best of the early Cinema Novo films.

A powerfully emotive portrait... this seminal film of the [Cinema Novo] movement is as naturalistic and heartwrenchingly earnest as any Vittorio De Sica weepie.

Like Ford's The Grapes of Wrath, another oft-misread seditious text, the film seems primed for a revolution.
