Movie Info

The vibrant colors of the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, are brought to life with flourishing energy in this effervescent glimpse at the cantadores, folk singers who hail from the more underprivileged regions of Brazil. As the group performs, we learn about their everyday lives, including everything from their financial status to religious beliefs and personal relationships -- all set against the backdrop of one of the world's most beautiful cities.


Critic Reviews for Saudade Do Futuro

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Completely successful or not, films like Saudade do Futuro are needed. And we need people like the Nordestinos.

Jan 31, 2002

As much a cinematic treasure as it is a celebration of Brazil's musical traditions.

Aug 14, 2003 | Full Review…

A fun and affectionate look at street musicians in Brazil, especially those practicing a kind of traditional rap poking fun at themselves, the audience and the sadness of life itself.
