Movie Info

A father desperate to improve his family's circumstances takes them on an unusual journey in this drama from Brazil. Romão (Wagner Moura) is a truck driver who has fallen on hard times; illiterate and unable to find work at a living wage, Romão and his wife, Rose (Cláudia Abreu), decide to leave the Northwestern provinces of Brazil and head east for Rio de Janeiro, which is 2,000 miles away. With no vehicle at their disposal, Romão, Rose, and their five children make the journey on bicycles. Along the way, they face physical and emotional hardship and bear witness to the many ways in which the nation they knew is changing. Romão also finds himself coming to a crossroads with his oldest son, Antônio (Ravi Ramos Lacerda), a teenager who has become openly defiant of his parents. O Caminho das Nuvens (aka The Middle of the World) was the first dramatic feature from documentary filmmaker Vincente Amorim.

Audience Reviews for The Middle of the World (O Caminho das Nuvens)

A good Brazilian movie that never got a good distribution deal. It looks like it was well hated by critics and users alike. I am a fan. It is an interesting slice of Brazil outside of the bit cities and a hugely rewarding experience.

I could do without this movie. It was interesting in some parts, but overall, just not great.
