Critic Reviews for Vidas Secas (Barren Lives)
A powerfully emotive portrait... this seminal film of the [Cinema Novo] movement is as naturalistic and heartwrenchingly earnest as any Vittorio De Sica weepie.
Audience Reviews for Vidas Secas (Barren Lives)
One of the most important Brazilian films ever made is this classic, unrestrained story of poverty and hardship as faced by a family living in a hellish, barren land and depicted with all the rawness that it needs - including a notable absence of sentimentality and even music.
