If you go for a classic Hollywood western this is not the movie for you. Portraying a section of the vast barren lands of the state of Pernambuco, Brazil at the begging of the 20th century, this peculiar "western" with a good story telling style unfolds (at times theatrically) the obnoxious life of the killer ( O Matador) Cabeleira in an endless cycle of violence and vengeance where women and children take the worst part. After a somehow slow beginning , once Cabeleira leaves his remote ranch to look for his adoptive father and arrives in town is where the real action starts, and begins the parade of singular characters that shape the narrative till the end. An excellent screen play where the photography, camera angles, scenery and lighting play the role that perfectly fits and recreate the ambient, graphic violence and tone of the movie. The performances are good and the dialogues sometimes resemble the iconic Brazilian soap opera - needed to say, the best in their genre in Latin America-. The history has a bizarre moment when the antagonist Monsieur Blanchard and his wife play an opera, in French, in that that hell of a place. The film also hints by moments that very Latin American literary concept of "Magic Realism". Highly enjoyable to my taste I recommend this movie.
Depressive, sad and boring movie. Storyline is missing.
As described in the Genre per RT: "Art House & International, Drama, Western." The film reasonably emulates slow-moving Westerns from the 50s & 60s adding the more modern level of violence that we've come to expect in THIS century. BE ADVISED that the film is in Portuguese and SUBTITLED in English. (Why doesn't RT ever tell you that about a feature?!)
Um Boa Historia, ambientação e cenografia, porém algumas relações entre os personagens poderiam ter sido melhor exploradas.
A failed attempt of a story telling type of movie. Too much violence, characteres not well explored... hard to watch
