Details

Neighbouring Sounds director Kleber Mendonça Filho returns with another intriguing insight into the state of modern Brazil that also provides a magnificent central role for Sonia Braga, so fondly remembered for Kiss of the Spiderwoman. Braga plays Clara, a retired music critic who is the sole resident of an old apartment block. She stubbornly refuses to move despite the blandishments and pressures of real estate developers. As the battle of wills intensifies, the film pits the brutal demands of big business against a view of the world in which places, objects and memories have a price far beyond money.

A triumph of socially conscious filmmaking; a bold and electrifying film that's grand in scope, but intimate in its execution.
