Critic Reviews for Limite
Limite is feverishly beautiful and desperately ambitious, even when it isn't clear.
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.
Audience Reviews for Limite
An amazing Brazilian silent, in which a man and two women are (without explanation) adrift at sea in a small boat, and each recalls some scenario from their past. This is the only film by Mario Peixoto, which is a damn shame because his work has a haunting poetry that immediately sucked me in and wouldn't let go. Along with cinematographer Edgar Brasil, he crafts shots that feel so intuitive that they seem like the film stock itself suggested them. I know that's a loopy and vague comment to make, but something about the way this movie was put together just sang to me... this thick air of melancholy and reverie and desperation. The music selection (Satie, Debussy, Stravisky, and more). A couple of parts were a bit sluggish, but I need to watch it when I'm a little less tired.
