Movie Info

At the time it was released, in 1931, this avant-garde and very surrealistic film by the teen-aged Brazilian Mario Peixoto was hailed as evidence of a very advanced sensibility and was compared to Un Chien Andalou. In the intervening years, this silent black-and-white independent production disappeared from sight, and it became Peixoto's one and only workl. In 1992, Limite was rediscovered in the United Kingdom National Film Archive and was restored to be shown at the London Film Festival. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Limite

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

  • Limite is feverishly beautiful and desperately ambitious, even when it isn't clear.

    May 12, 2007 | Rating: 4.5/5
  • The remarkably luscious and mobile cinematography (for which cameraman Edgar Brazil had to build special equipment) alone makes it well worth seeing.

  • Monótono? Muito. Auto-indulgente? Obviamente. Perfeito? De modo algum. Genial, ambicioso e inovador? Sim - e isto é só o começo. Inclua, também, adjetivos como 'poético', 'impactante' e 'mítico' e terá uma idéia melhor sobre este clássico.

    Considered by many as the Brazilian Un Chien Andalou, this poetic classic may be quite self-indulgent and repetitious, but is also a hugely innovative film in terms of cinematography and editing for the time it was made, with so many evocative shots that linger in the memory.
