Brazil | 2011 | Eduardo Nunes
In this dreamy, deliberately paced b&w fairy tale that is set in an impoverished Brazilian fishing village and evokes the cinematic worlds of Terrence Malick and Michael Haneke, a woman who may be a witch delivers a baby girl, but cannot save the mother. This singular newborn, Clarice, lives her whole life (childhood, adulthood, old age) in one 24-hour period that, to her fellow villagers, is just a day like any other. Shot in an extremely wide aspect ratio (3.66: 1—one and a half times the width of 'scope), this visually resplendent movie demands to be seen on the big screen. "Has the feel of a tropical Tarkovsky or a Béla Tarr movie with better weather...A magnificent fable." -Variety. Cleveland premiere.
