Behind The Sun (Abril Despeda├žado)

Director: Walter Salles Country: Braz/Fra/Switz
Cert: 12 Year: 2001 Length: 91 mins Language: Portugese; English subtitles

Synopsis

Brazil, 1910, and the reason for the blood feud between two families is long forgotten. Yet neither family has got to the point where it can see the futility of killing and the pointlessness of their deadly ritual. 'The Kid' - who knows that it is his beloved elder brother Tonho that is next, and for whom such a loss is as unfathomable as it is absurd - questions this cycle of revenge and reprisal.
A chance meeting with a passing circus act, affects the brothers and hope anew springs forth. However, is this newfound hope enough to break the cycle?

A visually stunning piece of filmmaking, Behind The Sun is both tragic and uplifting.
