Movie Info

A Brazilian teen devastated by his father's recent death reaches out over the internet for companionship, and encounters a pair of spirit guides who show him a mysterious alternate reality. Left alone with his mother in a Southern Brazil village, the withdrawn, 16 year old Bob Dylan fan spends most of his time online, where he interacts with others under the username "Mr. Tambourine Man." Desperate for contact with the outside world, he soon comes into contact with spirit guides Jungle Jangle and Julian. Now the more time he spends in their alluring domain, the less appeal reality begins to hold. Writer/director Esmir Filho adapts the novel by author Ismeal Caneppele.

Audience Reviews for Famous and the Dead (Os Famosos e os Duendes da Morte)

Review soon. For now, all I can say it is an interesting and beautiful Brazilian movie, very far from all the Brazilian stereotypes.

Super Reviewer

The movie tries to touch too many different topics and it ends up being confusing. Moreover, I found it to be extremely slow for moments. The director says there is a dialog between the movie and the book it is based on (the book was written at the same time the movie was being filmed). You might need to be reading the book while watching the movie if you want to understand what's going on.
