What separates and elevates Walter Salles' film above the familiar neo-realist type of melodrama is the stylized visual style and Fernanda Montengero's stunning performance.

An orphan boy tenderizes the heart of a cynical woman who finally realizes her kinship with others. This is a deeply spiritual film.

It may not be much of a movie, but, for the bulk of it, the strong and heartfelt performances of the two leads do make up for the threadbare storyline.
