35mm print “Salles’ second feature, fluently shot in b/w, focuses on Brazilian youth torn between the hardships of the newly democratic homeland and exile in the corrupted √©migr√© sub-culture of Lisbon. The story eventually settles on a young man on a bungled smuggling operation to Portugal, who finds himself on the run with a disenchanted Brazilian woman. Their sudden plunge into violence and romance, as well as their struggle for identity, is reminiscent of Antonioni’s The Passenger… the film’s stylistic bravura, occasional moments of real humour and excellent performances are pretty invigorating.” – Time Out (London)
