Directed by Walter Salles and Daniela Thomas
After the death of his mother, an impoverished and grief-stricken aspiring
Brazilian actor accepts a questionable delivery job from a shady antique
dealer. Traveling to Lisbon with a fortune in uncut diamonds, his life
intersects with a beautiful woman caught up in the Portuguese black market.
This well-made thriller, effectively shot in black and white, reflects the
angst that occupied Brazil following the political corruption and economic
crisis of the early 1990s. Portuguese with English subtitles. 100
