Movie Info

A large factory in Brazil is having problems with its workers and their union, just as the workers are having their problems with the factory bosses. In order to make their grievances heard, the workers decide to go out on strike against the plant. This action divides a family -- the son opts for working within the system and not joining the strikers, the father was the union organizer who got the strike together in the first place. His ideals are so strong that he had been jailed for them earlier. The strike is broken in the end, and the young man is vilified by his wife -- who leaves him, and by his father -- who disowns him, and by the other workers. As the father goes off to participate in a funeral of one of the strikers killed by the police, the son is left to ponder the consequences of his actions, and to reconsider whether he was completely justified in his stance. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Eles Não Usam Black-Tie (They Don't Wear Black Tie)

A realistic and terrific film, with very good direction by Leon Hirszman and with outstanding actings by the cast, especially by Fernanda Montenegro and Gianfrancesco Guarnieri. A fantastic tale about the fight of the workers, not just with the factory, but also in this world full of injustice, authoritarianism and imperialism. They Don't Wear Black Tie, is not only a unmissable film, but a scream of help. Fresh.
