  • Dec 03, 2014
    n "Neighboring Sounds," Joao(Gustavo Jahn) has spent the night getting acquainted physically with Sofia(Irma Brown). In the morning, they spend a lot of the time collecting their clothing and avoiding the maid and children. Then, Sofia finds her car stereo stolen. Luckily, Joao has a culprit in mind, Dinho(Yuri Holanda) who is also apparently responsible for every bit of crime around the neighborhood. What he is not responsible however is the dog that keeps Bia(Maeve Jenkings) awake. So, instead of taking sleeping pills herself, she uses them on the dog. "Neighboring Sounds" is a finely tuned look at class politics in Recife, Brazil where classes live close to each other, separated from each other by concrete walls. On the plus side, there is plenty of work to go around in security, even if it is very boring. And with such differences in reality, it is no surprise that the dream sequences work as well as they do, as does a key sequence where an old man goes swimming which makes the movie's point wonderfully and subtly. What does not work as well is Bia's battle with the dog, as I'm not quite sure what that symbolizes.

    A brilliant and extremely thought-provoking Brazilian film that uses a street in Recife as a microcosm for the social issues of middle class, exposing its latent bourgeois fears while drawing a clever parallel between a guilty past and the promise of a violent future.

    'Neighbouring Sounds'. A wonderful mix of direction, sound design, classes and characters in this suburban microcosm of Brazil.
